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.

    This is not new but I don't think has been highlighted much in CFS circles. I thought I would post it as CBT studies involving Gijs Bleijenberg and his team are often quoted to claim that CBT is an evidence-based therapy for CFS.

    However, compliance generally isn't measured and I'm not convinced that most patients are actually following the program which the authors claim is the way to treat CFS.

    In particular, I think the percentage of "relatively passive" CFS patients who would follow this program can't be particularly high:
    ETA: people shouldn't feel they have to read it all. It's not that exciting.
