    Hello all.

    I am thinking about writing to my congressman and senator and asking them to "weigh-in" on what is going on with the IOM meetings. I understand the basics of what is happening with adopting the Canadian Consensus Criteria and having CFIDS specialists on the panel. However, I have been too dizzy to really research everything about it to write a good letter after I wrote my letter last week.

    So, if I wrote a letter describing CFIDS and my situation and then asked the congressman/senator, "Can you do the following..." What would be something to ask for? What department of government is this - CDC, DHHS? Who is the chairperson? Who do they contact?

    If you have a good handle on the situation and can write several sentences or bullet points, please let me know. Or, if there is one article that summarizes this, please post as well.

    Thanks!
