I understand your point about IT, I'm a computer engineer, doing programming and IT architecture for a big electric company. Well I used to, before CFS hit me 4 years ago. I can't imagine working in that field until I get back some of my logic and concentration. It's way too hard on the brain. I have trouble reading a long post on the net!
I can't do any job atm but i'm confident I'll get back to IT some days. If the gupta programme and stuff don't work well enough, there is still the XMRV research that might end up being the ultimate cause of CFS, the WPI seems more confident than ever recently. I'm sure they reproduced the results of october on other patients.
Furthermore, some people are making fast progress on AZT (HIV drugs) on some other forums. We have many reasons to be hopeful, more than ever
Don't give up, it's already great that you can even think of doing job, you are ahead of me...!
