Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    I'm mainly highlighting this study for one reason: they used a motion-sensing device as an outcome measure in a paper that was published 17.5 years ago (and probably was devised in the region of 20 years ago). Why did it take so long before they were used more widely?

    Did anyone mention that most ME/CFS patients tolerate fluoxetine poorly?

    Likewise, this study shows that Fluoxetine is ineffective for depression in CFS patients, yet it is still not uncommon for it to be prescribed. Why is that?

    It's interesting with evidence-based reviews that antidepressants tend to get an easy ride. All sorts of edicts can come down to not prescribe X drug, as it's not evidence-based but this doesn't tend to happen with antidepressants.
