May 12th was CFIDS/CFS/ME Awareness Day. This debilitating illness is often misunderstood by those who come across it. Today, in honor of those who do suffer with this life changing illness ~ including my husband Joel and myself, I am posting this video with the hope that you will take the 6 minutes needed to view it.
Some people are able to function at 30-50% of their former selves, others are bedridden or homebound, and a select few regain nearly all their health back. On a side note, Joel functions at 40% and I am one of the homebound ~ with our illnesses complicated by Lyme Disease. Those of us fighting this illness do not want pity or even expect clear understanding. Across the board we want people to be informed and accepting. A cure is needed. Thank you.
