Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Just from the title, we could be confident of that.

    OMG this was from:

    I totally assumed it was a 'project' from a couple of students and one loopy professor... not people who are actually being paid to treat patients!

    Insane psychobabble.

    What the hell is wrong with the NHS that it lets these people run a clinic.

    I'm afraid. I can't tell if this is a joke by you or a serious piece to "help" ME sufferers...

    This is what passes for intellect in the UK now. I think the country might actually be doomed.

    Not for the first time, on behalf of my entire nation, I apologise to the rest of the world.

    It's a joke by me. It comes from the spoof current affair programme Brass Eye, and was intended as a motivational programme for prisoners (Geoff Boycott didn't know he was being spoofed). Morris had a good eye for the foibles of the medical profession as well - I remember a sketch where doctors filmed the disabled because they thought that they were 'just lazy'. Ahead of his time, alas...

    Dear Hilly, Jenny and Sarah of the Oxfordshire CFS/ME Service

    I never lost my voice, thanks, same with other people with ME I know. How about actually listening to us for a change instead of imposing your wiffly-waffly loopy thought processes?

    I already have hope for future recovery, thanks. No need for a poster. Studies like yours actually diminish my stocks of hope.

    How about you stop wasting your time and that of people with ME and instead help advocate for the necessary biomedical research to bring our hope for recovery to reality?

    Yours sincerely, Hutan

    I became ill when I was young, so I had no real conception of what a lifelong chronic illness is like. I had hope of recovery for a long time, but regardless of what I did or tried, it never happened. Before brainwashing people into expecting something that probably won't happen, perhaps we need to develop treatments that lead to recovery first.
