GREAT AND EXCITING UP TO DATE RECOVERY REPORT SENT BY A VERY ENERGETIC MOM FROM ARIZONA, USA! BRUKE FULLY RECOVERED ON THE CFIDS PROTOCOL IN FEBRUARY 2000 AND HAS BEEN ENJOYING FULLY ACTIVE AND PRODUCTIVE LIFE SINCE! (2009 REPORT)
Dear Dr. Petrovic,
It has been quite a few years since I have contacted you and stumbled upon your website again
tonight and felt as though I should give you an update on how I am doing.
I can say, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I am completely cured from CFIDS. If you recall I had CFIDS for 14 years, much of my childhood/teen years included in those years. Although I had learned how to live with CFIDS I was not functioning as a normal young adult should.I was sleeping usually 12 hours at night and taking a 2 hour nap every day. I was very skeptical to try something new to help my CFID and went into the program with a very negative attitude. I was sure I would live with this the rest of my life.
Within 2 weeks I noticed a difference in how I felt, I can still remember going to bed one night and feeling utter joy because for the first time in 14
years I was completely exhausted, not sick tired but the kind of tired you feel as a kid after swimming all day, my eyes were tired again not just my body. I knew I would be sleeping soundly that night. For 14 years I had woke up every 2 hours and could set the clock by it.
Finally I was able to sleep and wake up feeling like I had gotten some rest. It took awhile to completely change my sleep pattern but each night got better and now I very rarely wake up during the night (unless, of course a little voice calls in the night saying she has had a bad dream). I finished your protocol in February of 2000 and have not had even a bit of a relapse.
Now I typically get between 6 and 7 hours of sleep each night and can function throughout the day. I have 2 kids that keep me quite busy and I am very involved at their school and am so thankful I am able to be an active stay at home mom with them.
I can´t thank you enough for the change you have made in my life and the life of my family. You truly have been a blessing to us!!
I have received some calls over the years asking how I am feeling and would like you to know that you are still welcome to use me as a reference if you need to. My number is 623-544-8685 and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will contact you again soon with some other health questions, not related to CFIDS, and see if you can give me any insight or advice on the matter. I must close now though because I need to get up in about 6 hours to start a new dayJ.
Thank you again.
