I get occasional headaches that last less than a day, and as debilitating as they are for the short time they last, I can’t really imagine what chronic pain sufferers must go through — people who have to endure the “constant pain, crushing exhaustion and neurological problems” of ME / CFS.
ME stands for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and CFS stands for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
But… could the cause of ME / CFS have been discovered ?
The Whittemore Peterson Institute For Neuro-Immune Disease has recently detected the retroviral infection XMRV “in greater than 95% of the more than 200 ME/CFS, Fibromylagia, Atypical MS patients tested.”
This is a potentially AMAZING discovery to help ME / CFS sufferers!
Edit: Here is the link to donate to Whittemore. Imagine if we all gave just $10.00 each!!
And guess what, friends?! — Cinderkeys wrote, sings and plays piano on the haunting song “Everybody Knows About Me” in the Phoenix Rising video above! I’d listened to the Mp3 on her site a while back, but hearing it with the images brought the importance of raising awareness for ME / CFS to a new critical height for me. Cinderkeys wrote the song for a friend of hers.
I hope you will watch the video, check out her post and help spread the word!
Thanks so much!
