    this morning as i was getting ready to work I happened to switch on CNN and they were doing a show that profiled CFS.
    I was thrilled to see this DD getting some publicity (but at the same time a little unhappy that they didn't include FM).
    Anyhoot, they had a doctor on that was answering questions by phone and by e-mail and they were flooded with calls etc...
    Also they had the author of the bestseller 'Seabiscuit' on. Her name is Laura Hillebrand and has been suffering from CFS for the last 17 years.
    WE NEED MORE CELEBRITY SPOKESPEOPLE--EFFECTIVE WAY OF GETTING THE WORD OUT AND RAISING RESEARCH FUNDING.
    Since I was leaving for work I only got to see a small portion of the show but it was there and BEING HEARD !!!

    My disbelieving father may be staying overnight today.

    I wonder what he will think if he sees the show!

    thanks for the heads up!
