I appreciate the posts outlining why people think that ME patients don't get involved in more campaign and advocacy work... It would be helpful to understand how to reach more people, and get more people involved. But really this is all just speculation... We don't actually know why more don't get involved... So may I ask people to try to stick to positive and constructive ideas about reaching out to people, rather than picking apart the reasons why things might not be working the way we would like them to... I'm not aiming this comment at anyone... I've done my fair share of analysing in this thread. But I'd prefer this thread to remain about positive and constructive ideas. We might not come to any conclusions as a group, but - you never know - any ideas might stimulate people into setting up projects in the future.
