    Hello Everyone:
    I have not posted here for quite some time, but I wanted to let everyone know that I am still doing very well. I have been able to work and participate in many sporting activites. There are not many postings of those of have been ill for a long time followed by a "permanent" recovery. I still maintain a very strict gluten, dairy & soy free diet similar to a caveman type diet. I also avoid a lot of environmental triggers such as indoor air pollution and EM radiation. My CFS, MCS and FM symptom start to surface again if I go off the diet or if I get exposed to something toxic. There are many things that I do not do (fly in an airplane for one ) but there are many things that I can do. My energy level remains very good. I just wanted to let people know that there is hope and never give up as you can improve as I did (and I was very ill!). I'm not sure if or what role XMRV plays in my symptoms, but if I do have XMRV or XMRV antibodies, it is possible to live a productive life.
    All my best,
