Yesterday I saw the first ever television ad for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sufferers and the public!!! It showed a woman hardly able to get out of bed, and she was narrating through the ad about what the devastating things are having this disease, but the most of all that she 'was missing her life'. It was put out by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). It gave the message of getting diagnosed and the address of www.cdc.gov/cfs. I emailed them thanking them greatly for this verification and confirmation to not only us sufferers, but a perfect message for all those in the public who have their doubts and those who simply can't understand what we go through and why. So I hope you all get a chance to see it because you will love the job CDC did for us. FINALLY!!! HALLELUJAH!!! turn

Wow, that is amazing. I really didn't think that would ever happen. And to be put out by the Center for Disease Control. Do you remember which channel you saw it on? I hope I see it soon. Thank you. Hugs, Denise
