    The man in part three works in a pub as well as studying and staying up late drinking - he also looks suitably dishevelled. What a great comedy this is!

    On a more serious note - i have continued during every stage of my illness to sleep regular hours - sometimes a short nap in the afternoon, but usually not and despite getting my regular 8 hours i still have M.E! if only it were that simple.

    My hyperparathyroidism showed up as operable from a 24 hour urine collection; it did not seem too bad from the calcium and parathyroid hormone blood tests. I hope you can have these tests done - take someone with you and insist on being referred to a specialist. I believe the parathyroid hormone test can only be done in a hospital.

    The only treatment is an operation.

    I just watched these again, and they're way better with the subtitles (though a little hard to read)! Did Chalders "mmm mmm"ing drive anyone else bonkers?

    I must be having a humourless day, because I just wanted to slap them and then explain again slowly, with real sadness, that they have a perhaps incurable condition, now well recognised in the field of 'utterly crap and intellectually incurious to the point to near death clincian syndrome'.
    I would of course make the appropriate referral onward to psychological services, where in time their faulty beliefs, which ignore such a mass of research and anecodotal evidence, might be challenged and overcome.

    Unfortunately these clinicians tend to be hampered in the recovery process by very rigid belief systems, and delusional ideations, and their prognosis is often poor.
