    It's also possible to comment on this, which is always a good way to encourage editors to cover the subject matter again. It could be as simple as an expression of thanks for covering ME (including PACE) or it could be details on how ME has affected you.

    Personally I liked this bit in particular :ninja:

    Responding to part of the quote from Julie:

    It's also true that over time some of us who have no science background learn to appreciate science more and come to a better understanding that this disease is not 'fixed' by the latest hot fad. I think many of us have become a little more discerning as to the demarcation between science and pseudo-science.

    If I had the energy (meaning I was well) I would lobby my Federal government to work with provinces to help schools improve science curricula to a much higher standard.

    I understand the urge to find an explanation for what is happening in my body. I'm just a lot more sceptical than I used to be that the answer is quite as simple as it might seem from popular science.

    I'm really grateful for this article.

    Edit: more clarity/typo
