      hey cort, i was looking into getting ampligen out of canada, where i live, (BC) , but the special access drug program has stated that it is not available, then told me it had not been accessed for ten years, so i've asked to confirm with me that it is not available. apparently they used to do it but they stopped. thoughts? i emailed hemispherx

        I really don't know about Canada. I think the program has been dwindling in the US actually. I think emailing was a good idea.

      My son has major sensitivities to everything and has a hard time taking anything including food, meds etc. He has been tested with his ferritin at 17, amonia 61, typtase 1, immunoglobulin e 214. Any thoughts on this? thank you!

        check out Iron Man article for ferritin. We should get a study out showing that ferritin makes a big difference in POTS. Dr. Cheney found that gabapentin helped with chemical sensitivities and I am finding that B3 calms my system down and helps was well. I would think that anything that could calm his system down might help.

      Seriously, if you get to L.A. come by for a home cooked dinner. My husband ( a geography prof) and I have been wanderers too. Love the West. Check out Sacred sites in West - like Chimayo. Hugs.

      Cort, I have a question for you. Is this post private or public
      1. Cort
        Cort
        Profile Posts are - but maybe we should make them private? All the posts in the Community section are private.

      Hi Cort,

      The site is a little "crashy" today and when I posted an article it came up with the link, not the subject line. Then I tried to correct and it will not correct it. Probably will delete and start over but that being said, things are loading slowly or not at all. Just thought I would give you a heads up.
      1. Cort
        Cort
        Thanks It was slow for me too....hmm - I'll tell Stavya about it. Thanks for the link though :)

      What -it says you are going to be 91 today? Is that a mistypo? No one with CFS/ME will ever live to be 91 you feel 91 when diagnosed and before. Ive had it 10 yrs or a little more and I feel like I have nothing to loose and Im not even 50. why keep going? If Cort Johnson is 91 years old than someone else has taken up the forums etc.

      What's up with the sunglasses. I get scared when leaders of groups hide their eyes.

      We lived in Phoenix for 2 years long ago... . Be sure and return your visit to the Valley in August.
      That 91 will feel pleasant - after cooking your dinner on the fender of your car,~)

    I founded Phoenix Rising around 2004. (Find out more about Phoenix Rising here ) Over time Phoenix Rising became the most visited ME/CFS site on the internet. In 2012, however, disagreements with the small Board of Directors and my declining role at Phoenix Rising lead me to leave the organization.

    With help from the Simmaron Research Foundation I began Health Rising in Dec. 2012.
