I am astonished that you do not think that this initiative, if supported, and ultimately adopted, would hugely improve the science and our lives. GET, CBT as suggested by CDC, the Reeves definition, and the term CFS all ultimately severely exacerbate ME in many patients, deprive us of needed and deserved support and understanding and even kill some ME patients! I think your comment that a statement referencing A quote from Carruthers et al. was "intellectually dishonest" is completely untrue and your making such statements is harmful to us as a patient community. Please, let's try to work together- our survival depends on it.
