Abundance

“Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend." - Sarah Ban Breathnach

National Fatigue Survey Launched

I think this may apply only to those in the US. :( Results will be published March 2010. Please let your voice be heard!

National Fatigue Survey Launched

by The Fatigue Management Institute

The National Chronic Fatigue Survey, an internet-based survey of fatigue related to chronic illness, has been launched by the Fatigue Management Institute of Florida Institute of Technology. The survey is designed to gather information on the nature and impact of fatigue associated with chronic medical disorders. The survey findings will be used to better describe the experience and severity of fatigue related to chronic medical conditions and will contribute to the development of improved techniques for managing fatigue.

The Survey is open to adults with a chronic medical condition, can be completed anonymously, and can be accessed at:

Sounds like a useful project, even if it's not focused on CFS - it could still help to bring attention to all fatiguing illnesses. Thanks for passing this along, Shelli!

Shelli.
It makes one truly wonder, what the link is, doesn't it?
I hope it's useful.
In Love.

Thanks for posting information on our National Fatigue Survey, and thanks to all who have participated. We will break out results by types of medical disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and chronic fatigue syndrome, if we have a large enough response rate. Please encourage others to participate, as the Survey will be available through January 31, 2010, and we are not yet reaching as many of the individuals who deal with fatigue as we would have liked.
