Not that this is the most original idea ever , but reading this board and other forums/groups make you realize even moreso the emotional depth of the experience of having CFS or FM. If that depth in people's stories could be communicated via some kind of collabrative book, well that would just be great for awareness/research and potentially also very rewarding for the people involved (as a catharsis). So does anyone know anything about publishing books, or have any knowledge of the publishing busness? P.S. As I envision it, I think it would work best if people could write of their specific experiences without having to go into medical-babble or trying to explain the "pamplet/wikipedia version" of CFIDS while simultaneously telling their story (or some aspect of it). Sort of like "A Sudden Illness" by Laura Hillenbrand but without all the exposition on the illness itself that she must have felt responsible to use as a way to explain the it to the uninformed.
