Art of Letting Go - 'Tis the season of New Year's Resolutions.
People make them, and frequently they break them.
Tribute to William "Billy" Crook, MD
The Thief of Many Lives,
by Kathy Houghton
From the Author:
Until you read "The Thief of
Many Lives" you too may have questioned the validity of
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as a real illness. It is VERY real,
especially for us the sufferers and our caregivers. The
credibility and validity of this disease has long been a most
difficult message to convey to our Government, Physicians,
Healthcare Professionals, friends, families and general public.
What makes this even more challenging than how we might
physically appear is the inappropriate name given to such a
serious and debilitating disease. Consequently, one of the worse
things someone can say to a person with CFS is how well we look
on a particular day ... we must be feeling "better" ... "better"
than what? Death? Unfortunately, CFS victims generally do not
feel better than death ... warmed over or otherwise! Lengths of
time go by, month, seasons, and then years when all of our
reserve energy is used simply to eat and breathe and those
are the "good" days. Unfortunately, not many see this as most
people with CFS are left to suffer behind closed doors.
Unexplainably, our cries for awareness, and validity continue to
fall upon deaf ears. WAKE UP AMERICA (or other country)!!! CFS
is at epidemic proportions destroying lives and affecting
millions of people worldwide.
May 12th is
International CFS Awareness Day. Please make your voice be
heard. Inform others about the tragic impact this illness is
having on you, your loved one and our nation (your country).
AWARE OR BEWARE ... As you could be writing this letter
from your bed next May 12th.
