Now it’s cleanup time: for the next 5-7 days, I’ll be catching up on my thank you’s, emails, and finances, getting taxes in order, and getting some rest, and then it will be onto the blogs and the Lives Interrupted and Big Map projects.
Time will tell what 2023 will bring, but I hope and expect we’ll see the gathering wave of long-COVID research continue to rise. In particular, I hope we’ll see more major, multidimensional, long-term long-COVID studies.
The RECOVER project should complete its enrollment, announce its long-COVID clinical trials, and hopefully, start publishing in earnest. Avindra Nath’s NIH ME/CFS Intramural study results – which should consume quite a few papers – should come out and we’ll see how the NIH responds to them. (Will it boost funding as promised?) An exciting gut/exercise study from Suzanne Vernon and company should be out soon.
The NIH Working Group is also beginning its long-pandemic-delayed strategic plan for ME/CFS, the Open Medicine Foundation is beginning a treatment trials push, Jarred Younger is going to find out if our brains are being invaded, and some exciting advocacy ventures are afoot as well.
That’s just a few things that I know to expect off the top of my head. It should be an exciting year.
Thanks again for all your support. See you in a week or so 🙂
Freedom from Fibro Summit Encore Weekend – Watch Any Presentation
Watch any of the 40-plus presentations from Dr. Murphree’s Freedom from Fibro Summit for free this encore weekend. If exploring alternative health options is something for you – or if you just want to explore what’s out there – Dr. Murphree’s Summits provide a great overview of the possibilities this large field of medicine presents.
The Summit provides simple techniques to reduce pain and anxiety, provides updates on the latest research, diet options (one of which has helped me greatly), ways to boost energy, the latest on fibromyalgia research (my presentation), etc.
Click here to check out the encore weekend and here to see a prior blog on it.
i will miss you!!!
Ahhh! So nice of you to say! 🙂
ofcource, what did you thought!!! 🙂
Cort: A WELL! deserved vacation, I hope!!
So glad the donation drive went well! And I hope you manage to get a bit of a rest & catch up with your life. I’m looking forward to what’s ahead.
It doesn’t sound like you are going to be doing less, just working as hard as usual, getting caught up. Please take some down time just for you! You deserve as much care, as you give to others.
I’m so glad that the donation drive went well & I hope we will reap the rewards from it.
As usual I will continue to earnestly pray for a break through and or treatments for FM/CFS/ME. May God Bless All Of Us!
I know – I do have work at relaxing and rejuvenating! I’m getting better at it. Thanks!
‘Relaxing and rejuvenating’ is, I think, very tricky to achieve. There’s so many things that can make it elusive, especially if someone’s been wired and tired for a good while.
I really hope that you are working on relaxing and rejuvenating at this moment, I’d applaud you for trying. Take your time, blogs can wait, your health can’t.
Dear Cort: I sent my donation to Bateman Horne Center instead because I am still too “backward” to use Paypal while BHC allows VISA…just thot you might like to know. Cheers and Thanks, Maggie Cameron, Salmon Arm, Canada
I’m glad it went to a good place!
Take a good rest Cort, you deserve it. Will look forward to all the new things coming out this year. Perhaps it will be our year! Glad the donations did well. X
Cort, as soon as I get into a better financial position, I will be donating a substantial sum. Thanks for “carrying the flag”. We’re going to get there, and it’s because of tireless crusaders like you. Thank you!
When you wrote that you’ll do “emails, and finances, getting taxes in order, and getting some rest” in the next 5-7 days, you just summarized my plans for an entire year :).
Thank you for all you do Cort. Take some “me time.” I don’t know if you delete angry posts!!! haha, but I have never seen your site descend into an argument, even if folks disagree. It’s so refreshing and a haven of intelligent discussion and knowledge compared to fb!!! Take care. xx
I could probably count the number of angry posts I’ve deleted on the fingers of one hand. 🙂
That’s great to hear
Court, hello! Thank you so much for your review articles! The patient community of ME in Russia loves your blog very much!
The only difficulty we encountered: in the “Latest Blogs” section, links in “Traetment”, “Drugs” etc. do not work. Please try to make them functional again, it will help so much with navigation!
Thank you, Court! I hope that soon we will be healthy together!
When your vacation will end? We are missing you
