    Jeannette: "like Mindy says it's 'insanity'"; IoM not qualified; Fukuda was a disaster, destroyed so many lives; you can not produce a meaningful definition. Your definition will be destroyed. Patients will fight you to the end with lawsuits and public opinion.

    Haha. I love it!!!

    Mary Dimmock speaking personally about how her child's health was destroyed by climbing Mt. Washington because exercise was emphasized to him as critical after his ME/CFS diagnosis. emphasizes PEM. heterogeneity is man-made in CFS. applause. 'spectrum' idea isn't valid. You need a ouiji board to make sense out of all the studies based on all the different definitions.

    Nice!

    Eileen calling for cancellation of contract, citing all the evidence of opposition- fifty expert letter, letters to congress, calls from congress, tweets, 171 advocates, etc.

    I hope everyone is paying attention to Eileen Holderman. She helped word the CFSAC recommendation that HHS claims this study is based on.

    Eileen: This IoM process is fatally flawed. You are good experts, but HHS has rigged the game like they always do. CFSAC recommended a workshop to adopt CCC; it is outrageous what HHS has done with this- Eileen and others who object to govt definition plans threatened by govt; IoM has already written studies on ME that are very incorrect; we have a good definition CCC, these three processes are a waste, cancel them; start studying the disease, it's been 30 years.

    Anne Keith- do no harm; recommend to HHS they adopt CCC until an all-expert committee can update it.

    Good message.

    Joe Landson- valid points, talking about book Brain on Fire, but not related enough to project, imo.

    Susan Kreutzer- speaking on behalf of mecfsforums; 5,002 signatures against IoM contract! Maybe this was why mecfsforums was not invited to speak.

    Susan- experts have already said CCC should be adopted; this contract is just a waste of money.

    Good job!
