    Hi Everyone,

    I know some of you here have written to the reader's section of your local newspapers about CFS Awareness Day. I would also like to send something this week in the hopes that it would be published before May 12.

    If anyone has some ideas or even a letter that was published, I could use some help.

    Thanking in advance,

    Foxglove

    Hi Foxglove,
    I would hope that you would include in your letter that CFS/CFIDS/ME can strike ANYONE - that this disease has no preference to race, socio-economic level, education level, gender or age.
    That it is recognized as a disease by both the CDC and the social security administration (well, that one is getting there slowly in some cases).
    That some states are further along in the study of and treatment for the disease, and that MANY other countries are light-years ahead of the US in terms of research and treatment.
    Kuddos to you for doing this.
    Peace,
    Kim
