    Apparently she was asked, then accepted and was elected at the conference in her absence. Cool :cool:

    This is obviously serving Fred Friedberg with his 600 000 coping-for-tired people grant.

    We the PWME should start compiling a Black Book of our "potential enemies", it should be a testament for future generations to be very careful in whom they put their trust when dealing with what the establishment calls "medical mysteries".
    IMHO ME/CFS is just a step behind MS in being a medical mystery, but I might be wrong.
    Many if not all autoimmune diseases are very complex, heterogeneous and multifactorial in their presentation, etiogenesis and pathogenesis.
    I also think that some long time ME/CFS researcher have focused on the fatigue, because they play the same game that the government has being playing with PWME.
    The problem is that our broken lives are not a game and as PWMS before us we're not only fatigued!
