The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    Hi @BurnA have just got round to listening to this. It is brilliant, such clear rational thinking, concentrating on the facts.
    At times he seemed a bit worn out, probably the jet-lag and many talks.

    Thanks again for doing this. Am looking fwd to hearing his pre-conference dinner speech on the DVD.

    Thanks @MEMum

    David had just landed from his flight from San Francisco and was exhausted. He slept for half an hour on my couch and I had to wake him up to do the interview.


    There was so much on my mind during the interview, from cameras, microphones and knowing David only had a short time, that i didnt really take in what he was saying, at the time.

    It was only when I watched the interview back did I realise how articulate and clear thinking he was, he answered each question in full detail without having to pause for breath at times. And he wasn't rambling, it was a case of knowing exactly what to say.

    As you say David knows the subject inside out. Very impressed . He can respreaent me anytime. I'm tongue tied at about sentence 5 even on a subject I know well. Some days am even saying the wrong words in the first sentence ( but almost the right ones - it's really funny sometimes).
    How did he end up on your couch ? Great questions and filming btw

    Agreed. The steely calm factually incisive approach is usually most effective with us Brits.

    Wouldn't it be great though, if there was no need for it next year.

    Well, assuming you pay taxes. I suspect many of us are non-tax-payers as we don't earn enough.

    Chances are good that we are all paying tax as some form of goods and services or value added tax.

    VAT does not count for gift-aid in the UK.
