Thank you Whittemore Peterson Institute! (If the link doesn't work today it is because their website is undergoing a face lift. Keep checking back.) One year ago my world was shaken by an "earthquake" of unparalleled size, news that seemed unbelievable, the discovery of a retrovirus (like HIV or HTLV), called XMRV, in my blood!

As the initial shock wore off and title wave of emotions calmed, we (the "CFS" community) began to see the amazing impact this news carried, a tsunami wave that could tear down decades of government denial and physician misunderstanding. A year later the "aftershocks" continue to ripple, gaining momentum through ongoing research breakthroughs, cracking the foundations of the statues quo, and carrying us on waves of renewed hope.
