CFS news: what's happening?

Sunday 11 December 2011


From the Health Matters Show:


Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory CommitteeCFS News: What's happening?


If you’re like me, your life is busy, your health demands that you pay attention to your self quite a bit, but even so, you would really like to know: What’s Happening with CFS News? Today you can find many resources here. Before you do, let’s talk a minute about where you see yourself.

There are four discussion points today plus the link to the CFS Advisory Committee page with the 28 videos… .

MP3 File

Today’s audio podcast is 5 minutes and 20 seconds :-)

1) Do you keep up with everything CFS? I’m betting, “No.” You’re more likely a person with CFS or you’re the caregiver of a patient (child, teenager or adult). You’re doing the best you can to figure out what’s wrong with “you” and you’re trying to get well!

2) You only have so much time and energy available to pay attention to a specific topic, such as what’s really happening in the world of CFS News. You’re glad to know that real and important issues are being discussed, but unless your life allows the activity, you may miss a few things from time to time.

That’s assuming you don’t have such severe brain fog that you can keep up at all. If you can’t, I do my best to bring you the highlights. Such services as either reading and accessing the information here on the website or signing up for my RSS feed, and you’ll still get everything and miss nothing! The information will simply come to you easier, where and when you’re ready to consume it. Find the RSS sign up box with (orange with white stripes) in the right-hand column of this page. Sign up today!

3) You want to lend support to advocacy, awareness or research issues, as best you can. But can you do everything you want to do? Some days, can you meet any of those goals at all?

4) For most people, it’s difficult to feel that we’re getting ahead, especially in the area of research. It’s there; it’s significant. It’s there; it proves nothing. The money is not there at all…because past government officials tried to pull the wool over everyone’s ideas and abscond with the research money for their own pet projects. On and on the story goes. Where or where does the money go?

I urge you to bookmark this page right now: The 2011 November CFS Advisory Committee meeting. There are quite a few videos posted on this page. If you do this, you can watch some now, some later when you have down time. Example: when you’re suffering through your husband’s ball game. Instead, you can quietly don a pair of headphones and really learn something instead! I’m not saying that every bit of this material is worth writing home about, but there is good stuff contained within these multiple video presentations. Over the Internet is a great way to see and hear it, if you didn’t attend the CFSAC Advisory Committee meeting and conference in person.

Stay tuned for more and learn what’s happening in the field of CFS News.

Thanks, Cinda Crawford
Your host of the Health Matters Show
