Theres a reason why Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is not taken seriously and it has to do with money. Insurance companies send misinformation to doctors, the media, and the public to stigmatize the disease and the people who have it. As long as the medical community believes that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a psychosomatic illness, insurance companies can avoid paying billions of dollars in disability claims. In Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A Novel, the reader follows along as a reporter and village doctor seek answers to why dozens of people have fallen ill in their rural, Ohio town. They discover the role insurance companies have played in perpetuating the myth that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is all in your head. Woven throughout the novel is extensively researched and verifiable data that exposes the money motives that have stifled research into the illness while ruining the lives of millions of people across the globe, three out of four of whom are women. This revised edition updates the novel with the most recent information on ME/CFS including its new name, SEID.
  • "This is a gripping, well-written, engaging and provocative novel by Carol Wolf. It vividly shows the power of determined people to challenge injustices that have been perpetuated against individuals with CFS," Leonard A. Jason, Ph.D. Professor, DePaul University.
  • "The tension in the book keeps building, and the ending will thrill any person touched by ME/CFS," Mindy Kitei, CFS Central.
  • "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A Novel is an eye-opening entree for the uninitiated and a rousing read for those in the know. Highly recommended," Cort Johnson, Health Rising
