    so hard to know what helped.

    Also, there was no no-treatment group so some or all of the change could be due to passage of time (particularly important with young people).

    The abstract doesn't mention there was no significant improvement in fatigue:
    They used the Chalder Fatigue Scale (14-item)
    Baseline: 24.1 (+/- 8.4)
    Follow-up: 22.7 (+/- 8.4).

    Plus, there's no way of filtering out the positive effects of repetition on the assessment task...
