ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    Forward ME group minutes from 12th Feb 2014:
    http://www.forward-me.org.uk/12th February 2014.htm

    These minutes are well worth a read. They include interesting and important discussions about the difficulties faced by families with children with ME in the UK (e.g. child protections issues, inappropriate treatments, problems with education, & the SMILE trial.) It seems that these issues are common, and there are many similar cases being handled by a number of the attendees at the meeting.


    Among the subjects highlighted in the minutes are:
    • Various issues for families with children with ME: Inappropriate treatment, child protection issues & problems with education.
    • SMILE Trial and the Lightning Process.
    • UK Research Collaborative.
    • Rituximab.
    • UK welfare benefits: PIP and WCA.
    • Dr Nigel Speight re patients in the Netherlands and Germany.

    I'm tempted to quote some sections of text, but it all needs quoting.

    It's a short enough read, really just an outline :)
