Moving to mainstream

Things are a chang’in as we learn more about these disorders. The presence of XMRV antibodies in CFS patients and the few FM patients tested unofficially at Whittemore Peterson Institute (The study on CFS published was published in the prestigious "Science") is an example of that. The fact that Dr. OZ is actually saying the words, FM, CFS and XMRV and CMP on TV is also exhilarating news. We must keep an open mind to the many possibilities that are ahead. If I know anything as a medical person, RN, it is that science is in perpetual motion which means change. We cannot take one notion, study or person, including myself, as the Holy Grail until we really know the cause. Thanks to the many dedicated scientists and doctors I believe the answers will be coming. The most important thing we can do is advocate for funding so the necessary science can take place.

Knowledge – Empowerment

When we empower ourselves with knowledge, not even the most least compassionate health care provider can take it away. Not even one iota of what we have learned the hard way. Mark my words, "they will be eating crow one day," maybe sooner than we think. The evidence is staggering now and we have come a long way. Hold on tight, it's going to be quite a ride.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has."
--Margaret Mead
