The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    This guy is bats*#t crazy. Sorry, I am being negative today because my doctor held off on filling my prescriptions. I disagreed with her again on what causes FMS and CFS (as in not trauma) and I guess that was my punishment. So, I am a little disgruntled. He is though, bats*^t crazy, that is.

    Sorry to hear of another First hand experience. I've experienced the same from my doctors before, as we've all had. More often than not they have been contaminated by the psychobabble.

    I'm constantly amazed how people who read a few articles, or follow their daily newspaper, often think they are "informed". When in fact, they have been duped!

    Yeap... we must be getting too much of a handful so he's trying to go after the old and feeble disabled now. I see him as one who targets the most defenceless patient groups there are.

    I'm having a flashback to quacks who claimed reading bumps on people's heads could tell you about the person!
    In that case, Wessely must have more bumps on his head than Middenface McNulty!! :p

    (refference to 2000AD sci-fi comic character, and, flashbacks were also used in comics a long time ago)

    Reminds me of my awful dreams - it was the psyches at the end of my bed ! Actually some "real Docs" taken over by the mumbo jumbo spouted the the mantra to me in A & E. I wish I had the energies to respond to "all in the mind" - at the time and say "and so are you" unfortunately. Lost it's bearings this branch with any real Medicine. You quote Shakespeare so "take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them" - which we will.
