    My message was concerning The 4 illnesses I battle each day ... but while I am able to work now ... I have no idea for how long ... each day is a struggle
    I am trying to reach as many as I can and have picked up some new friends along the way who are helping me to spread the word ..... this is OUR chance to be heard .... please send your comments and ask two more to send theirs ... and so on ... I have given the info to my doctors and I have also gone to congress.com and sent messages to the President - and all my congressmen... please help ... send comments ... Thanks ... Pat Jarvis

    Thank you for sending this information out. I have submitted my comments and truly hope that our ever growing community of immune and invisible illness people will do the same. I cannot seem to find the place where you can reveiw other comments though. Can you give me a clue as to where I might find it?
    Thanks!

    I saw one of my doctors today .... she is sending me to a pulminary specialist ... one thing after another ... but I gave her the website and she is going to add her comments .... I think if I can reach at least two people each day who will pass the info on to two more ....well ... just think of all the people we can reach ....
    Take care and thank you
