Well whatever ones situation we can all welcome the nicer weather, but I get so annoyed when people think that our problems will somehow all be transformed by a bit of sunshine. My usual reply is that Ive had remissions in the depth of winter and conversely felt really awful on a lovely summers day. I know some sufferers have trouble keeping warm, especially in bed (when I suffered from night coldness, earlier in my illness, and needed to sleep in woollen socks and jumpers! It wasnt actually in the winter!), or suffer terrible night sweats, but this apart I dont think the seasons have any measurable effect. What do you think?
I found Dr Cheneys Article very interesting (see page 3). His views about the various stages of the illness certainly make sense. The fact that our symptoms change through time and the reason why Ampligen only has an effect in the earlier stages of the illness. But we still see large variations in our symptoms. And what of those whove been severely ill for a long time and dont seem to have reached the third (final) stage?
