Study: http://www.hqlo.com/content/12/1/64 WHODAS 2.0 (Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0 - 36 item questionnaire - self assessment) http://www.who.int/classifications/icf/WHODAS2.0_36itemsSELF.pdf?ua=1 I found the above one of the most latest, helpful and current insights into this dis-ease, diagnosis and separating CFS from M.E. It is also interesting regarding women with M.E. and the severity and wonder if this is because of the traditional roles women play in employment through, health, welfare, education and public service delivery etc. and wonder if women are more susceptible because of their greater exposure to the public? Looking forward to your views!
