letters to media: stop showing tired people


Senior Member
The media are at a loss for what pictures or videos to show for the disease. We need to educate them, I think.

Typically they show people who look tired.

An attractive and dignified person with oxygen is an excellent portrayal, IMO. A few pictures have been like this, thanks to Andrea (thanks!).

I also like the two images from the CFSAC testimony.

Or a person with an IV, perhaps? A person playing sports (before) and lying in bed (after)? A list of symptoms flashing on the screen?

I think that we have to supply them with ideas by writing them letters.

What do you think?
