And equally, leaving things as they are (i.e. CFS is not reclassified) has the danger of ME being continued to be completely ignored, as it is now. But you are advocating for the status quo, where CFS and ME remain separate. So why do you think that everything will suddenly and drastically change now, if the classifications remain unchanged? Agreed. Yep, I tend to agree. I these discussions are over-egging the ICD's importance. I think more change will come about from other avenues of advocacy.
