    68% I think is a very high rate considering that some who responded may only fit CFS definations and not ME ones so could well be against a change to ME name on that ground out of fear of possibly ending up with no name for their illness.

    I think we have to keep on using the ME till we do win the battle to use this name till the time comes in which they know far more about our illness.

    Dr. Leonard Jason is doing some great research which hopefully will end up really helping us. thanks
