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.

    Summary(s)

    A summary is at: http://www.mediafire.com/?j3obuik5xu8gx19

    The 25% ME Group adjusted it - mainly to include some quotes from one of their surveys that was quoted from in the paper.
    They have mentioned this in their latest mailing: http://25megroup.org/campaigning_awareness.html#aware2012

    This version can be downloaded from: http://25megroup.org/Campaignging/M...T/Tom Kindlon's_paper summary for website.doc

    Thought I'd give the paper a plug:

    Just got some nice comments on my Harms paper:



    ---------
    The paper is available free here: http://iacfsme.org/BULLETINFALL2011/Fall2011KindlonHarmsPaperABSTRACT/tabid/501/Default.aspx
    I'd love more people to read it. It took a lot of work to write and I'd love to see it put to use more.

    ------
    Self-praise is no praise so of course one of my assistants that has posted this on Phoenix Rising, rather than posting it myself. ;) *
    [*But just to be clear, I didn't write the main comment. Also, I was given permission to quote it]

    ----
    As I mention here ( https://listserv.nodak.edu/cgi-bin/wa.exe?A2=ind1112B&L=CO-CURE&P=R3946&I=-3&d=No+Match%3BMatch%3BMatches ) a lot of people gave input on the writing of the paper.

    Praise is deserved for this paper. It went a long way to filling a massive gaping hole in the literature. It is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the CBT/GET controversy or critiquing the evidence.
