    I'm not a big fan of childhood adversity as a cause/causative factor: the studies have problems including not good definitions of CFS, not good knowledge of when the illness started, "positive" results from one study haven't matched up well with other studies (i.e. replication problems), etc. But usually in the CFS field anyway, they haven't looked at immune problems, so thought I'd throw this out for what it's worth:
