New Video from Carol Head on ME/CFS

During a speech at the Stanford Business School Reunion, Carol Head does an excellent job of explaining how ME/CFS affects the body, the problems with the IOM, underfunding, the pervasive stigmas surrounding ME/CFS, and “the special kind of hell” patients experience when diagnosed with a new and little understood illness. Head’s speech is a great way to introduce ME/CFS to someone new.

Carol Head is one of the few people who have gone into spontaneous remission and stresses that it’s as much a matter of luck when this happens as it is from finding any particular “solution” and I agree with this assessment wholeheartedly.

The only thing that will save the ME/CFS sufferer is sufficient funding for the study of the causes and possible treatments for this disease.
