From USA Today "Opinion: Telling the hidden story of chronic fatigue syndrome."
By Ryan Prior
"Seven months ago I wrote a story for USA TODAY College that changed the direction of my life.
I wrote of my six-year struggle with a little-known illness called chronic fatigue syndrome (also called myalgic encephalomyelitis). It was a hard story to write. Contracting this illness touched me at the deepest level of my soul; it changed my very identity. I’ve usually been very private about my health. It’s hard to tell those stories without tears in my eyes. But I did.
It’s hard to tell of dropping out of high school, of missed soccer games or missed proms, of the fear that comes with no doctor being able to explain why I was bed-ridden and my mind was too foggy to make even the simplest of decisions. That’s how life is for over a million Americans."
