Thank Hanks you for writing this wonderful and insightful article about ME/CFS. Public awareness is so important to push public policy to do something about the disease with a stupid name to before more young people are needlessly put at risk. It makes life so hard. I know. I fell sick with my study abroad class the summer between my sophomore and junior years of college more than 33 years ago. That is a long time to have an illness that those charged with understanding public health to have largely ignored. Since they did not accept the challenge it is up to each of us to shine a light and tell them no more darkness..
