"It isn't just my story that I am telling though I am here to tell it. It is the story of millions of people. It is a story that has been hidden instead of shared to its demise. Its invisibility has only perpetuated its mistreatment. "
With all of the news coming out around Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) I felt it was time to tell my own experience with having this disease for the past 16 years. I've written an autobiographical short story: http://bealightcfsawareness.blogspot.com/2010/09/short-story-written-and-told-from.html.
Please let me know any thoughts, ideas, critiques on this piece of work. I do believe that these stories need to be out there. People are reading about the evolving science, but don't necessarily understand the significance without understanding the experience.
