    Please let them stop researching what we already know while we waste the years of our lives in bed. Please.

    We might know it, but for the medical profession to know it, it needs to repeated.

    It is useful to have something like this, at least to rubbish any study done using Oxford criteria.

    Psychology/psychiatry in general are not the problem. It is a particular hard core cult within those professions that is the problem.

    Well, that hard core cult has caused so much damage, I am automatically leery of any research conducted by those in the fields of psychology/psychiatry, and so was pleasantly surprised to see some good being done in that field.

    Sorry. Dr. Lenny Jason is a long-standing ME/CFS advocate who is a Professor of Psych at DePaul. I think he also has ME/CFS, if I recall correctly.

    Thank you. I know I'm not up on all the major names in ME/CFS --- at least I learned a new one today! :)
