Amy, on the WSJ Health Blog, reported on this as well:
Sorry I have not been posting lately. My posts are now more filtering of the best ME/CFS news, than responding to them. As someone else said (and I am shamelessly using their words, and although I went back to give credit where credit is due, I failed to find the statement or its' author again), I think I am in the middle of a cytokine storm lately.
