Back 16 years ago when I was first dx with CFS I was going to a wonderful dr who believed that I was too exhausted to take a deep breath, that I was exhausted all the time but had trouble sleeping. Well, as life happens, our insurance would no longer cover him and not being made of money we had to look elsewhere. Well, just before Christmas I was on line and found his site. He now specializes in Fibro/CFS. I emailed for an appointment and received a call on my answering machine Christmas Eve saying they had nothing available until April... I was disappointed but DH said to call them after new yrs. day and set up the appointment. On New Yrs. eve day, I got a call from them, he remembered me and they had a cancellation for this coming Fri. Would I want to come? YES!YES!YES! - so Friday @ 10:00 I have hope! His book and treatment are all talked about on his site http//www.recoverfromfibro.com - The Bowersox Protocol - So God has answered my prayers. I feel hope!

I created a similar thread over on Trich World a couple of years ago (the Trich social networking site) and it's still popular! So I thought I'd...
