Welcome to the end of the year ‘Story Edition’ of Phoenix Rising.

The edition, which was delayed because of computer problems, was designed to
give ME/CFS patients a chance to ponder the difficulties and opportunities
that millions of people across the globe face as we enter the new year.
The challenges facing the CFS community are enormous.

These are three remarkably different stories; one involves a Canadian now
almost completely disabled but still participating as fiercely as she can, a
Nevadan who’s story illustrates the emotional challenges ME/CFS can pose to
an entire family, and a ME/CFS patient who emerged in complete health after
from many years of suffering. Plus there’s a blog from me about a possible
breakthrough that will provide food for thought for some chronic fatigue
syndrome (ME/CFS) patients.

You can access these stories at the below URL’s.

Linda’s Story – Linda writes of the ups and downs of a 20 year journey with
severe ME/CFS that began in college.


DM’s Story – DM’s *family, with their diagnosis by a prominent physician and
their well documented immune abnormalities, demonstrate how many different
facets – emotional and physical – ME/ **CFS** can have. *

Diana’s Story – Diana’s story of recovery from a chlamydiae pneumoniae
infection may be familiar to some. Here she provides a recent update of her
startling return to health after many years of suffering.


Corts Blog – A new trigger for ME/CFS? A trip to the dentist has a
surprising result with possibly long term results.

About FMS Global News

Folllowing Rick Usher's death in December 2008, at his request in September of that year, I had agreed, as his principal contributor and an experienced journalist, to run the FMS Global News service due to his heavy commitments to music and raising research funds through this avenue. Following his sad and sudden death I hope to continue his work as he would have wished.
