    Pity he didn't do more research. Quoting the AfME definition, not mentioning PEM and saying that a moderate sufferer can lead a relatively active life makes me wonder how accurate his portrayal of ME is going to be.

    They all go to AfME.

    I'd be interested to find out how they choose AfME for their info.

    I know that AfME show up on google near the top and with an add -- it may simple be that some money (as usual) needs to be raised to promote a more patient friendly source of info.

    Another thing I'd like to point out about a lot of the media around ME is that few talk about how severe the cognitive symptoms can be. If I had the energy level of this person I still could not function because my ability to focus/concentrate/think clearly is severely limited.
