Jody, I'm also happy to hear about your continuing progress, and I think you did such a good job of painting pictures of your life before and after treatment. This is what gets most people's attention and interest. I'm also feeling good about the progress I'm making (on Freddd's B12/methylation protocol), so reading it didn't make me pissed! And to tell the truth, until recently, I didn't have the energy to be angry, so if I'd read it sicker I still wouldn't have been pissed. I couldn't have been.
I'm nowhere near all the way there, either, but at least I have the energy to be pissed...and usually I'm choosing to use that energy in ways that do better things for me than being pissed off. Anger can be motivating, but I find it is often a closed loop that drains my already-drained energy. That includes anger at myself.
Good article, and I think also a good article for introducing people to what CFS does to a person's life.
