    I was so surprised when I saw the ad in People - it made me feel so legitimate!!!

    I wish that FM could be represented that way too.

    Having the CDC on board made it really carry weight.

    I have it taped to my mirror.

    I knew it would be in some publications - but in People it will reach so many regular folks!

    Thank you all who were involved in this!!!

    That's great. I did not think it was going to be released until the 15th. I would have missed it. Who is on the cover? I want to make sure I buy the correct issue.

    The CFIDS Grassroots Association is doing a great job. Please consider joining. It can only help people with FM also.

    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!!!!
