Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

    Here are some highlights of the patronising words of the BBC journalist:

    BBC journalist:

    "...at it's heart, it seems to be an objection by some activists, to the association of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with mental illness - it's characterisation as a psychiatric condition. Now they claim the real cause is biological and want research to focus exclusively on identifying the, as yet undiscovered, virus responsible."


    BBC journalist:

    "...people seem to latch on to the idea that there might be a virus involved and that we haven't found the concrete cause of the disease, and people like you are in a big conspiracy to pretend that they are all malingerers..."


    BBC journalist, repeating Wessely, as if paraphrasing the attitude of the average ME patient:

    "I would rather have an incurable disease than a mental health problem."
