    Hey folks! On Monday morning I'm going to be interviewed by my local paper for Awareness Day (May 12). Since I know that I don't have ALL the symptoms for CFS/FM (although it sure feels like it!) could I get a listing from you all? Every bit of info I can give him will be a big help. Thanks!!

    God Bless.

    Why not just speak from your own experience. It will come through as genuine and not just a list of everyone's experiences because the diseases are so complicated. You might want to give the reporter a print out of possible symptom and otherwise focus on what you go through. You know, the personal touch can mean so much more.

    I also want to let him know that there are more symptoms than just mine. That way people reading the article might recognize their own symptoms...if they haven't been diagnosed...and doctors (those who aren't already educated) might recognize their patients' symptoms also.

    I want this article to educate people about all CFS/FM, not just mine.

    Luckily, this reporter is a friend of mine so I know he will listen.

    Thanks.

    God Bless.

    forget words in a middle of sentence
    get tired easily
    aching in every muscle
    wake up feeling drained after a good sleep
    forget what I was going to say/ where I put things.

    That site is a blessing! I copied it to my wordpad and I'll print it out for Monday.

    Thanks again!

    God Bless.
