Yes I believe that so.. more health care professionals and teachers get this illness.. so its kind of irronic for one of those groups to be knocking ME/CFS. It is understandable some thou due to naivity around it the illness. We arent just talking about nastiness here but peoples own naive beliefs on what the illness is about, hence the "bar talk". If at least one of them comes to realise that ME/CFS is actually a serious illness, which has has a lot of suffering around it.. a reply to their board is worth it. (bashing those who are making the comments thou wont help to bring any understanding). Some of them havent even been able to believe and comprehend that the one in the photo is a real person and not a manakin, who isnt looking real to some of them, due to being so sick. (I guess that isnt helping when some dont even believe the article is real).
