    The CFIDS of America puts out a chronicle four times a year plus they have a website. This one was very good but I always think their articles and evem on their site are a little depressing. It just seems like they always talk about people that have been sick forever or they mention that recovery is very slim. Granted, many people on this baord have been sick for awhile but there are some that have recovered. I think their research is very good but biased and they don't seem to really have any answers..everything seems up in the air. Anyone else feel this way??

    I think they are about 5 to 10 years behind the times. The doctor I saw at Kaiser, who claims to be their CFS specialist, told me about this website. He also told me that maybe in 5 years they will know more about CFS and didn't have much else for me except b12 shots and anti-depressants. I didn't listen to him one bit and am now on my way to recovery with the help of FFC. There are answers. Never give up. Basically what I've learned about most doctors is that they're mostly interested in protecting their reputations first and helping patients second. They are unwilling to think out of the box and try something new for fear of what their colleagues will say.
