Any ME/CFS/CFIDS/Covid Long Haulers out there?

If so, know that you are not alone.

I count myself among you.

In the United States alone there are an estimated 2.5 million of us (ME/CFS/CFIDS) with 90% undiagnosed.

Despite being disabled by the experience, I have not lost hope and consider myself fortunate to be among the 10% that have been diagnosed.

I've been fortunate enough to land in the hands of a couple of skilled physicians and an incredibly gifted chiropractor & clinical nutritionist that recognized my experience and explored the possibility that my experience might fall under the category I've used to head this blog.

After years of suffering and questioning my own sanity (although deep down inside I knew my experience was not psychosomatic), a diagnosis came well over a year ago. I've been unable to work for years now and unable to tolerate exercise for well over 2 years.

And, yet, I have hope ...
