Llewellyn King gears up for Awareness Month

An article by Llewellyn King about ME/CFS and the "Undies on the Outside" campaign has appeared in both Huffington Post and The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Taking a selfie with underwear worn over outerwear is a new campaign, “Undies on the Outside,” to raise money — desperately needed money — for research on ME. This money possibly should have come through the government years ago, but the principal medical research arm of the United States, the National Institutes of Health, has been parsimonious in funding ME down through the years. Only $5 million a year is devoted to the affliction.

Yet the sick are almost inevitably sentenced to a lifetime of unspeakable suffering — often being confined to bed for months at a time and sometimes years — in pain and hideous isolation. They tell their story on ME/CFSAlert, the YouTube channel that I co-founded.

Llewellyn King, journalist and long-time ME/CFS advocate, announced the publication of the article via his ME/CFS Alert GoFundMe page:

In addition to writing the article, he has recently interviewed Linda Tannebaum of the Open Medicine Institute and will post that video soon on YouTube.
