I don't have insight into the workings of the CDC, but currently the CDC obviously only acknowledge 'CFS' as per Fukuda. Of course, if we asking the CDC to recognise 'ME' as a separate disease, then that opens up the old can of worms re names and diagnostic criteria. For item no. 18 to go forwards, we'll have to have some careful wording for it. It could be along the lines that the CDC should recognise that there is a distinct biomedical disease called 'ME', or something simple along those lines.
