    I was reading Womens day i think, at the doctors office and it said:
    My feet weigh a ton, I am DO tired, I can;t think clearly etc, etc, and I thought - wow that's me! It was an ad for CFS. spoke about the suffering and to talk to your doctor about it.

    I ripped it out for us. I might try to put it on my profile tommorow for you all to see, if you would be interested. I think it also talked about research.

    Made me feel very good that they are starting to validate it and advertise and raise awareness. That was the 1 good thing that happened in my day today.

    I haven't actually seen it in a magazine but it can also be seen on the CFIDS web site.

    currently for both ads in magazines and public sevice announcements on TV getting the word out on CFS. I am happy to see the ads on TV, but it seems at least in my area those ads are only aired very late night. It is a step in the right direction.
