Shame campaign.

I had an idea for a video to draw attention to the fact that few people and many doctors still do not take this disease seriously, especially when it's referred to as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. If anyone knows how to get this started, all suggestions are appreciated. There are some very popular youtube videos with pictures of dogs with signs hanging around their necks with statements about things the dogs did wrong.(e.g. A dog sitting, surrounded by reams of toilet paper with one that says "I TP the house when mom goes out." - they're much funnier than that). Perhaps we could have people in doctor attire (white coat, steth) who, one by one, would stand there, deadpan, with signs around their necks saying things like, "I told my patient to just drink coffee." Or, "I told my patient to go see a therapist." At the end would be a statement as to what CFS/ME really is and where to get info.

    Great idea! It uses visuals that wii be remembered and provides truth for clarification.
