CFS Patient Advocate:
"What the AIDS patient learned to advocate for was not compassion from the public, was not sympathy from the public - what they learned to advocate for was research dollars, research funds."
"Focus energies on getting money for research. Find out the etiology of this disease." (in this case he was speaking of Lyme)
"Focus on research, not suffering."
"Dont blame your adversaries" "Bring them (your adversaries) in, don't cut them out." Otherwise you will have to wait until they are dead - and that could be a long time.
“Develop coordinated activism" How do we best get funds to study this disease?
