I watched the above video this morning on Laurel's blog Dreams at Stake.
Those with ME/CFS often have difficulties describing their illness in a way that others can comprehend, I thought this was such an excellent video. The song was Everybody Knows about ME, thanks to Cinder Bridge. The video was put together by Phoenix rising forum.
My diagnosis of ME/CFS turned out to be Lyme Disease and on long term antibiotics I have my health and my life back. So many other blogs I read, the symptoms of ME/CFS are so similar to my own and others with Lyme Disease. An earlier post I did remarks on an e mail I received from a ME/CFS specialist who says research shows more than 30% of patients with ME/CFS actually have Lyme Disease. However some seem to have Lyme Disease and not respond well to antibiotics clearly there is something else in the cocktail of infections that needs addressing, hopefully the recent research on XMRV will help many more patients struggling with chronic ill health.
