"While the current state of basic scientific and treatment intervention findings in CFS do not warrant optimism, it can be fervently hoped that future research in CFS can begin to provide answers. In this, CFS sufferers must be grouped with sufferers of Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, and other severely disabling diseases." The above quote is from an article on the Co-Cure website titled: "The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Qualification for Disability Benefits" by Donald Schopflocher, Ph.D. (Psychology) M.E. / C.F.S. Society of Edmonton October, 1995 Revised June, 1998 This should make it very clear to those who scoff at us that what we are suffering with is not a joke!! Bliss Out.
