Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I have had CFS since March 2002. My 14-year old son and 10-year old son also has CFS. I have a scientific background (chemical engineering) and have read and researched extensively to try to help myself and my sons to improve our symptoms, with some success. I`ve also conferred with some of the top CFS doctors in the U.S. I have a lot of hard-won experience working with school systems to get appropriate support for my sons. This is a very debilitating and isolating illness, and I would be glad to help anyone else who is struggling with CFS themselves or with a family member. You can read about our experiences in learning to live with CFS at my blog:
