Ryan Prior, Medical Student at Stanford University

It is becoming more and more evident that there are so many more individuals than ever thought, who have the debilitating chronic illness, ME.ย  Since last year, the number of assumed cases of ME has gone from 1 million to up to 4 million in the U.S., and from 17 million up to 20 million worldwide!

Here is a young medical student, at Stanford University, named Ryan Prior, relating in a short dialogue, his own experience with ME.

Although he is supposed to be “recovered,” Ryan mentions the daily medications he is still taking and gives himself weekly injections and there is also a monthly IV that he gets.

So, his “recovery” really means that, as of now, he is better able to lead a more “normal” life, but with medical support.
