Re: Race For The Cure
I hope I don't sound too negative here, but part of the problem that we have with getting up a "run for the cure" for FMS/CFS is that no one who actually has it would be capable of "running" long enough to make it worth while. You made it three miles... I ,personally, would not make it 10 steps. Even in a wheel chair, my arms would give out long before I could "roll" any distance. And the majority of us encounter a culture that does not believe we are really ill because this disease does not show itself in our outward appearance... it's hiding. We don't "look" sick, therefore we must just be making it all up in our heads. ......
It's a bit hard to convince the world to get out and run for a cure for us if they just don't think we are ill.
