    Yes. It is true. I do have both Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and ME (now considered separate illnesses by many experts, I am told.)

    ME/CFS has ruined my life and caused me not only to miss appointments and social events, but also make ill-thought out decisions that have - in turn - made my life a vicious-circle of stress, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and illness.

    Any pointers on how to break this evil cycle would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your sympathetic post.

    Off topic post, but what's one more snowflake in this blizzard. Some pointers. Note: IANAPhysician.

    If you are on prescribed meds, research them online till you know them better than the manufacturers. I found out I was on meds that not only had never been shown to have efficacy for my illness, they actually had known (but not to my physician) side effects that made me worse. If you do the research and decide to stop some/all meds, do not do so abruptly.

    Remove as much stress from your life as you reasonably can. Stress is not what you want if you have PTSD. Even if you don't, stress is poison. Posting a torrent here, and getting torrents in return, is probably not a good thing.

    In my own case I broke the vicious cycle by breaking the vicious cycle. It is both that complex and that easy. Change your attitude, your diet (meat full of growth hormones is something to be wary of), change your meds (if necessary, depending on your research), your lifestyle, your hairdo. In short, rewrite your own life so it turns out better for you. Register adrian.miles.name and be content with that, and proud of it.

    If I may beg the indulgence of ICANNWatchers, this feelgood post is not entirely off-topic, the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) bears many interesting parallels to ICANN. It is controlled by BigPharma, the major pharmaceutical manufacturers, so their interests are looked after ahead of the consumer. It has far exceeded its mandate, IE: mission creep, except in areas like tobacco where there is enough money floating around for them to look the other way. And it tries to get other countries to fall into line with its policies, often using coercive bully boy tactics. I could go on but hopefully you get the picture. This is why much of the rest of the civilized world looks with a wary eye at the US, its processes are so easily and thoroughly gamed. With ICANN being born in that culture, it would have been surprising if it had turned out differently than it has. -g
