My expereince with Micklet therapy It does work to an extent, I will give it that. I went from 15% to 75% plus functioning. It works by first of all educating you about he mindbody comection. I have no quible with that and I would recommend a mindbody therapy to anyone with CFS (and there are MANY, like yoga, acupuncture, etc etc). The problem with Mickel therapy specifically is that, for some reason, they really exagerate with the picture they paint of the life you could have… if only you would believe in it, set boundaries, and stick up for yourself and the like. (Like someone else here wrote,) they get you get all 'revved up' about your life. The trouble was, that in my case, although the "boundaries" made me feel better physically, they didn't actually work in terms of my life, people treating me any better or having "the life I wanted". Very much the opposite in fact. I did it years ago and I'm still feeling lied to by the therapist and basically devastated with how badly everything went. They encouraged me to do a lot of artwork which I've had to mostly throw away because no one would give it the time of day. The therapist saw himself as very "spiritual", used vague language, and when I called him back a few years after, and told him how badly things had gone, he basically just shrugged his shoulders, said it wan't his problem, and then implied that maybe I couldn't have "the life I wanted" after all. I tried to get him to explain things more clearly but he basically laughed at my confusion. I tried emailing Dr, Mickel about the whoel thing and he didn't answer me back. My life is kind of back to being nightmare again in a lot of other ways, due to toal loss of rationalty and ability to cope brought on by MT.
