Well, five more days and my book will be at the Frankfurt Book Fair, the largest book fair in the world! Pray with me it does well so CFS sufferers get the help and respect the need and deserve! I thinking it will do well since they treat CFS over there. Hopefully the attendees will take an interest in another patient’s story. Can only hope. Have a wonderful evening everybody.
A study that tracked 200 patients suffering from CFS found three major brain abnormalities that distinguished them from healthy people.

Hello, everyone! Hope you’re all doing very well. Not much to say except I was asked to write an article for Living Well Magazine last summer about life with CFS. It is in this months’ issue. Here is the link if anyone is interested in reading it. Click the link and turn to page thirteen.
Thank you and everybody take care!
Hi again, all……I wanted to share this link with you. I was interviewed and featured in the sunday edition of my homeotown newspaper, the Elgin Courier News. Here is the article. Hope you find it helpful!
Well, after a very long time I am finally back! I had trouble retrieving my information because I changed my email address, plus I was very sick this summer. It seemed like forever, but I am finally better.
Last weekend I flew to Los Angeles to the Book to Screen Pitchfest to pitch my book to seven different production companies. My publisher called me back in June to tell me this, and I decided even though finances would be less than what I wanted in the bank, I had to do this. A lot of people had a lot to lose if I didn’t and so did I. Can you imagine any better way of spreading awareness for this awful disease than a made for tv movie?. Of course now I’m dead from the trip, but I thanked God for getting me through the weekend and giving me the strength and mental clarity to do this. I elicited some reactions from all seven reps, so hopefully someone will request a copy of my book and want to make some kind of film out of it. I will know more in a few days.
Anyway, that’s about all I have to say today. Until I blog again folks! Take good care of yourselves.
