Phoenix Rising: Interview with Martha Kilcoyne

Wednesday 26 March 2008

CFS Phoenix Phoenix Rising is an informative newsletter put out monthly by American CFS suffererCort Johnsonon his website CFS Phoenix.

You can subscribe to the newsletter as well as download each issue.

Once again Phoenix Rising has an interesting interview. This one’s with Martha Kilcoyne, author of Defeat Chronic Fatigue: You Don’t Have to Live With It:

A Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Patient Returns: An Interview with Martha Kilcoyne by Cort Johnson (external link)

Here is Cort’s introduction to the interview:

A Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) Patient Returns: the Martha Kilcoyne Interview

Martha Kilcoyne, the author of Defeat Chronic Fatigue: You Don’t Have to Live With It is living proof that people can and do return to complete health after being disabled by this disease. Ten years after she came down with a severe case of chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and seven years after she recovered from it Martha Kilcoyne returned to tell her story. In this interview I talk with Martha about her experiences with ME/CFS and the techniques she and her husband pioneered to beat ME/CFS, many of which are becoming standard practice amongst forward thinking doctors.

Next week we take a look at a new and controversial theory of ME/CFS by CDC researcher James Jones and examine the CDC’s program on ME/CFS.

We’ll devote most of April to an extensive three part interview – as we take advantage of Dr. Ken Friedman’s experience on many levels of CFS – as a researcher, author, advocate and father. In this interview we’ll begin to peal disperse the fog that pervades the federal response to ME/CFS as Dr. Friedman, a past member of the federal advisory committee on CFS (CFSAC) answers tough questions with his characteristic honesty and bluntness.

Yours truly,
