Driving research of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS),
Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS), Fibromyalgia and Long Covid

This isn’t a question really.
First, I’d like to express my tremendous gratitude to the researchers and all those who made the conference and livestream possible. Learning about studies that are coming up with biological explanations for the symptoms I experience is so validating and gives me some hope for the future.

Second, Please hurry! Of course, take the time to do careful work. But like most patients, I’m terribly aware of my life passing without me really being able to be in it. I was a physician in one of those illustrious East Coast hospitals when I developed ME / CFS in my late 30s. I’m about to be 67 and I’m hoping there will be some sort of treatment before I’m too old to make good use of it. I know every patient with this illness would say Please hurry. And some are in extremely dire situations.

Thank you all for your dedication to this work.
