CFS and marijuana

I was trying to find out if Illinois allows medical marijuana for CFS. I still don't know. But here is a good article describing CFS. One good thing about this article is that it emphasises that stress is a major CFS trigger, and that stress-management should be an important therapy. It also notes that medical marijuana is used to help symptoms. One bad thing is that it singles out Epstein Barr virus somewhat, which is improper. EBV my only be a symptom. People w/ CMV, or other Herpes viruses, can have CFS which is just as valid as those w/ EBV. (Note: I need to study Herpes viruses - as I recently heard they are classified as "double-strand DNA" viruses, which is interesting to me).

I've said this before, but you might want to look into yoga as well. If it does nothing else, it helps dealing with stress. You don't have to do crazy poses and you certainly can use props to assist you with the poses that you want to do. (And, although it's nice to have equipment, it's not always necessary; you could probably improvise with things you have around your home.)

Here's one account from someone who has ME/CFS :
