    That list looks quite incomplete to be honest.

    I find it interesting that both the psychiatrists in this article are arguing for underlying medical causes of mood and anxiety disorders. (One works at my future medical school of choice!) I don't like the random flux of my moods; anxiety that I can't find an underlying reason to have; and irritability that makes me snap at people without reason. On a brighter note, if I successfully become a neurologist, and my brother a neuro-psychiatrist maybe we can work together to destroy the stigma throughout the medical community that ME/CFS is psychological.

    They will only cite things that have stronger evidence that they are aware of. Depression is most probably an illness response in many cases.

    This is one of the issues with the evidence based movement - while it does increase the soundness of the reasoning it does so in a biased way. It puts blinkers on the investigators. While evidence does need to be assessed as to reliability, even anecdotal evidence has value.
