    I thought they did this over a year ago. Strange how long the media takes to get around to covering it.

    I also am slightly annoyed that the MSNBC shortened the name of the disease (at least on its headlines page) to simply "Chronic Fatigue." CFS is vague enough, but Chronic Fatigue could be anything.

    I think I'm going to start being really _adamant_ about telling people that I have Neuroendocrineimmune Disorder, which is a subset of what has traditionally been known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I get much better responses when i do that, and it certainly isn't a lie in any sense.

    It's a start but they at least need to change the name to something more serious. I vote for I.F.L.D.D. (I Feel Like Dying Disease) LOL, well ok seriously some other name that people won't say oh I have CFS too! Grrrrr!!
