International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day is May 12: The World Will Know
Did you know that May 12 belongs to us? Lots of us are aware of this. We share the buzz on it amongst ourselves. We add blue ribbons to profile pictures. We raise our voices, join our hands, mount the few podiums available to us and tug at the sleeve of the rest of the world.

    http://freespace.virgin.net/david.axford/me/me.htmYes, I'd recommend this site too.

    Most of it is written by Ellen Goudsmit Ph.D, who did her PhD on ME.

    She does quarterly updates with the abstracts of most or nearly all of the papers from the period included. But the particularly interesting bits are when she quotes bits from the full papers and/or puts her own comments on the papers.

    However, just reading the updates are only part of the benefit of the site. She really knows the literature inside out and particularly the flaws in the studies and views of those of the "CBT School of Thought with regard to CFS" i.e. those who think all we need to do is graded activity/exercise programmes and/or CBT to encourage us to do graded activity/exercise programmes. She is a patient - I think patients in this illness are often better at spotting the B*llsh*t written about us.
