Thanks Tom. I think I have consistently said that I didn't see any significant difference of opinion between us, and that all such things are relatively minor compared to the scale of what we have in common - what we have faced and what we may face next. I'm here to learn from others, so it's all good. The other threads you mention (The Psychiatric view of ME/CFS. What is it? and Peter White/Barts - comments on draft NICE guidelines - insight into their views) are indeed superb, packed with useful information I'm mining.
