Tito suffered from a health condition called chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, for over a decade and, because of it, had to abandon the teaching profession. He became an assistant to a Senior with muscular dystrophy for eight long years but he always ran out of energy throughout the day and resorted to naps to help him get through. He slept more than nine hours every night and woke late in the morning.

Since CFS patients show no outward signs of sickness, CFS has confounded conventional doctors on how to treat it and the public hardly believe it to be a genuine health condition. Tito, who had never inwardly bowed his head in defeat to CFS, nor lost hope in getting better, was eager for help and used his spare time to explore the Internet for a potential cure.
