QUOTE ME is no more an "invisible disease" than cancer or MS or the 'flu. "Invisible illness" is just a get-out clause for any bigot to excuse their behaviour and I wish people wouldn't keep furthering that myth IamME, what visible, physical manifestations of ME do you have? Apart from nystagmus, thin hair and lots of bruises, I look like healthy people. There is nothing in the Canadian criteria which defines CFS by any visible, physical alterations. Sorry, but I have to correct you , it IS an invisible disease. And using stock photos with models is standard journalistic practise in articles about anything from rape or economic disaster to tourism and a wide range of diseases. In the UK, every time they ran an article about mad cow disease, they would put up a picture of dairy cattle which were not relevant to beef production, and the articles about genetic modification always showed a tomato, which is not a genetically modified crop. We are not being singled out.
