    Nurse-delivered, home-based pragmatic rehabilitation has a short-term effect on improving fatigue in people with chronic fatigue syndrome compared with usual GP care, but effects were not sustained at 1 year.

    God bless them for trying and the honest evaluation is very much appreciated but maybe the problem is that the disease is organic in nature. All of the support in the world is only going to have a very minor effect and in the case of supportive listening, what we really benefit from is a good nap, not another appointment/obligation.
