    There is a new special "Time Magazine" issue which deals with chronic pain. FMS and CFIDS are mentioned. I haven't seen this issue but it was mentioned on "Morning Joe" today. I will be looking for it at the store. If you go to the magazine's website, you can read an article on chronic pain.

    Between this and the CBS Evening News segment on CFIDS and the new study, we are finally getting some recognition. It's a start.

    Does go into mind-over-matter treatment and that may be a turnoff to some. We had a good discussion on brain plasticity here and how to use that ability to help with pain. If one's thoughts can be used to help with pain, it doesn't mean that the pain is "all in our heads," but the issue has become so contensious that just the idea of using our brains to help control pain can offend some.

    I feel that the article validates that our pain is read and it gives credibility to our illnesses.
