    Thanks for the mention. Um, I'm clueless about FB and wouldn't know how to start finding the MEA post about my new page (how did they find me?).. But here goes

    Simon McGrath Me/CFS research (FB has a thing about capitals)

    That's it really. I probably won't post much (apart from when shamelessly plugging my own stuff, of which there probably won't be any more). I'll try to post on a few big studies that seem important to me (like the Bob Naviaux one this year), but will also try to be realistic about studies, including mentioning weak points, rather than simply hyping stuff.

    I won't be clogging up your feeds if you follow me (can you even follow a page??)

    Sounds like this is going to be the most amazing FB page of all time Simon! Are you sure you're not slightly over-selling it? With you, anything is possible though. With the release of your new PACE paper, it really seems that you might be on the brink of bringing down the UK medical establishment, and reforming the processes of science, all from your bed.

    I guess we're going to have to wait and see if you can live up to those amazing promises.

    Is there a way to see more than the abstract?

    More than the abstract would be useful for #stopGET letters and articles if you're allowed to share @Simon. I've asked @Tom Kindlon about this too.

    Congratulations on this and your high profile 'occasional posts' FB page ;)

    Yes, many thanks.

    Something that puzzles me is ...
    ... preliminary? Is this saying that a fuller (whatever that might mean) reanalysis is to follow? If so when could we expect that? And what might it offer that the preliminary re-analysis does not? Or is it a bit of a teaser, and there may be nothing further?
