    Exactly. Why aren't they breaking down the results? It's unlikely that they're substantially different from the previous surveys, in which case lumping together results creates a somewhat misleading picture.

    AfME is not an ME patient organization. They don't serve our interests.

    The full data does leave GET looking worse.
