Thanks for posting. I’ll take a read on this....I have a debilitating case.

Sorry if this offends, but I know a few people have been chronic complaining sad sacks who are little more than emotional vampires sucking the sympathy and compassion from every living being that pays any attention to them.

New evidence published in the prestigious journal Science on October 8, 2009 clearly links CFS to a newly discovered virus called XMRV. This is explosive news, if confirmed by additional researchers, that would shatter forever the theory of CFS as psychiatric.

Thank you very much! My story is much like yours...
