On Being Seen on Capitol Hill

This past Wednesday, April 3rd, I participated in Advocacy Day sponsored by Solve ME/CFS and MEAction. I joined over 234 other advocates who spread out over Capitol Hill to more than 224 Senate and House offices to change minds through personal stories, education and facts. Advocacy is empowering. Not everyone is able to channel their anger at the injustice into advocacy and certainly the sickest in our society are often TOO sick to fight for justice.
