    how refreshing to read something like this - sounds like she has some experience of real ME patients.
    Pity she's not an NHS GP - we'd all be flocking to her!!!

    It's a good article. I googled the author. She is described as recovering from ME since 1986

    A welcome article. Problem is that NHS docs likely can't follow it all even if they want to as its not supported by the NICE guidelines. But still good to see as stuff like this helps to gradually change the false beliefs of doctors regarding the illness.

    Sigh... So it has nothing official to do with the NHS. Still it wasn't a bad read.
