Help remove Dr. William Reeves from the CDC/CFS program NOW.

The discovery of the XMRV virus and its link to CFIDS has shown a spotlight on the three daceds of failure by the CDC/CFS program. What has the CDC accomplished in three decades with over $150 Million wasted??? NOTHING!!

The CDC and NIH have robbed me of over a decade of a my life. They owe me. Can we sue?

We can sue Reeves but it would be difficult. I think it would be nearly impossible to sue the CDC, though there has been some suits against them for vaccines for children. Just don't know the full facts on this one.

There MUST be a CFIDS person out there who is an attorney willing to take this effort on. If need be, we could start a collection to pay for that person's time and paperwork, filing fees, etc.

I don't believe the answer to this problem is to sue anyone. I believe we need to do everything possible to get answers and cures but lawsuits are not going to help anyone find treatments.

You should write you congressman your senator and anyone else that could help with the funding for the research that will be required to pinpoint a cure or treatment. I just want my life back and it is not going to help me to sue anyone in order to for that to happen. CFS suffers have limited energy and it should be used in a positive track and not a negative lawsuit that will just drain us all of the energy we have available.

Joe, I agree with you about not suing. Those of us with CFS need not waste our energy shoveling it at a lawsuit. Hey, people sometimes let you down, that's life.
