Overview

It can happen literally overnight. Sylvia Hodin went to sleep one December night a seemingly healthy sixty-five-year-old woman and awoke the next day unable to move. At first she thought she had suffered a stroke; Sylvia then realized that she had slept through twelve hours and had awakened with flu-like symptoms, barely able to move.

An R.N. by profession, she recounts the plethora of symptoms she experienced, her diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome, and the various remedies she employed to ease the pain and discomfort she was experiencing. While there is no cure for the “Yuppie Disease,” she hopes that by bringing attention to it, research will continue and one might someday become reality.
