    I posted already on this topic but didn't want it to get lost. Here is info regarding issue and content of the ad published in this week's People Magazine.

    I was profoundly affected by it. I feel like it will really reach out to people who don't get it. The CDC is on board. Kudos to all involved!!!!!

    The Ad is in the November 12 issue of PEOPLE Magazine, which for reasons I don't understand, pre-dates its issues. The Nov 12 issue was released last Thursday (Nov 2) to Newsstands. I received it Fri in the mail.

    Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe are on the cover.

    The ad is not too far in, I'm sorry I don't have the page #.

    I was struck by how powerful it is. It depicts a woman facing a mirror looking like she is tired and in pain.

    The letters used in the ad look "shattered" - like many of us feel.

    The caption says:

    "My MEMORY is shot. My legs feel like LEAD. EVERY MUSCLE in my body is SCREAMING. So why do people think the problems are all in my head?"

    AWESOME!!!! Hope EVERYONE sees it!
