Stigmatized Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sufferers seek recognition
As many as 400,000 Canadians suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. But according to a federal review, their condition is all in their minds.
Canada's largest scientific funding agency recently decided that ME/CFS is not deserving of research funding because it is not a legitimate disease, and more likely made up by patients.
That has infuriated patients such as Vancouver's Jasmine Sanchez-Ziller. For the past decade, the once athletic 25-year-old has been losing energy, leaving her housebound and mostly bedridden.
