The Poisoning of America: The Rise of ‘Mystery’ Illnesses Including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Gulf War Syndrome
Jason Alexander Uttley writes, “I have no doubt that when all is said and done, the voice of the people who have been living with so many ‘mysterious ailments’ [including CFS, FM, and GWS] for so long will finally be heard. And when that happens, I believe the medical community as we now know it will be turned upside down, and I would truly hope in the end, changed for the better.”
How One Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Patient Found Relief Through Oxygen Treatments
Thea Schlosser is a CFS/FM patient and author, who discovered during her darkest hour of struggling with these diseases a ‘miraculous’ and simple treatment that provided her with substantial relief: oxygen therapy.
The Politics of Pain: The Controversy Surrounding Chronic Pain and Opioids
Anne-Marie Vidal writes, “Anyone who lives with chronic pain is acutely aware of many physicians’ difficulty in coming to terms with prescribing adequate pain medication. For us [fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients], this is more than a research or academic issue. We know first hand that pain is debilitating and can erode our standard of living and ability to earn an income.”
