My brave friend lives with this disease. It forced her into early retirement from a teaching career she loved and excelled at, and she now writes from home to inform others on what it is and how to help. If you've heard CFS dismissed as "all in their heads," you need to read this.
This is perhaps my favorite poem:
It doesn't interest me if there is one God or many gods.
I want to know if you belong or feel abandoned.
If you know despair or can see it in others.
I want to know if you are prepared to live in the world with its harsh need
to change you.
If you can look backwith firm eyessaying this is where I stand.
I want to knowif you know how to melt into that fierce heat of livingfalling towardthe center of your longing.
I want to know if you are willingto live, day by day, with the consequence of love and the bitter unwanted passion of your sure defeat.
I have heard, in that fierce embrace, eventhe gods speak of God.
-- David Whyte
