The September issue of “O”prah magazine features an article on CFS! It is on the newsstands now, so make sure you go and get your copy! There are more than 16 million readers of this magazine, so the coverage will reach many people. I am so excited that there is now being more attention paid to those of us with this illness. Maybe we will be taken more seriously now.

“Investigative reporter Mary Fischer interviewed Laura Hillenbrand, author of Seabiscuit; Michelle Akers, world-champion soccer star; Kim McCleary, president and CEO of the CFIDS Association; Anthony Komaroff, MD, of Harvard Medical School; and Suzanne Vernon, PhD, of the CDC for this article. The CFIDS Association helped inform Fischer about the illness and helped connect her with Hillenbrand, Akers, Komaroff and Vernon. The resulting article focuses on the impact of CFS on people’s lives and on the research indicating there is a biological basis for CFS and, for the most part, is balanced. “But tired or supertired, the point is,” Fischer says, “it’s not all in your head.”
