Here is what I would like to see our community of people who suffer from CFIDS evolve over the next five years: 1. More research studies: treatment, pathophysiology, etiology, etc. 2. Better communication of research findings between researchers, specialists, generalists, and patients 3. Better communication of clinical findings between fellow clinicians, researchers, specialists, and patients 4. A dynamically responsive, generally accepted, standard treatment protocol Live up to these goals, and, some day soon, anybody new to this disease: whether he be patient, doctor, or high school sophomore doing a report should not have to look far before finding the best, most current theories and treatments for this condition.
