    I would love to join this study, but I am unable to open your attachment. I have followed all of your instructions for opening, but it fails every try. I am an apple user with safari. I did however join the Microsoft platform but again, no luck. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

      I tried to upload my information but was unable to finish the questionnaire. I tried to get back on, but was unable to do so. I have sent a couple of emails, but didn’t hear back from anyone.

    I tried to enroll but the encrypted message never worked and I received no follow up which is disappointing.

    The survey is broken. I was diagnosed by Mayo Clinic and Dr Vernino as having CFS. The survey said I did not qualify.
