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.

    A few more details in the story would have been good but highlights severe M.E.

    I'm not posting the full article as I'm hoping to get it in the top 10 most read.

    Feel free to highlight link elsewhere e.g. blog, Facebook, Bebo, etc.

    Thanks Tom; great article! It takes ME seriously!
    (only little critique i'd have is that Sophia is not the only one to ever have ME on her death certificate and many more than that have had their death caused by ME, but had another proximate cause like lymphoma, suicide, heart disease, catastrophic encephalitis etc. put on the certificate instead)

    Thanks Justin.

    Fair point about the death certs.

    I don't think the article fully makes clear that Sophia and her mum were making rational choice.

    Article is now third most e-mailed so well done to anybody who E-mailed in on.

    ETA: At the time of this edit, it is the most E-mailed. :victory:

    (I'll nitpick and say the only little critique i'd have of the article is that Sophia is not the only one to ever have ME on her death certificate and many more than that have had their death caused by ME, but had another proximate cause like lymphoma, suicide, heart disease, catastrophic encephalitis etc. put on the certificate instead)
