Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

    This thread stems from a discussion in another thread. This is a place for people to find and post resource lists for doctors. I'm going to post mine later. Feel free to offer suggestions.

    This thread is not to be confused with the research section or the library. This is not a place to post every new study you find. It is a for complete resource lists that can be printed or emailed to doctors and suggestions for changes or improvement.

    I was having trouble finding this post to make changes to my reading list for doctors, so I moved it to a place that's easier for me. You can find it in my blog.

    Great list, Andrew! In fact, I plan to use it very soon. I don't know if you can access it, but for point #3, inclusion of the NY Times article on XMRV could help also with credibility.

    the pdf worked for me. Thank you so much for this Andrew. I'll try to go over it in detail to see if I have any feedback, but after a quick first scan, it looks fantastic.

    We'll give it some time to see + hopefully get free access to the full document, but the new Baraniuk looks like it might become a classic (see the thread for more juicy bits) and worth including.

    'Xenotropic Murine Leukemia Virus-Related Virus in Chronic Fatigue
    Syndrome and Prostate Cancer'
    James N. Baraniuk
    Curr Allergy Asthma Rep
    DOI 10.1007/s11882-010-0106-2

    Thanks for the suggestions. I don't know which NY Times to look at. Also, I have not had a chance to do a decent read of the Baraniuk article yet. But I already made one change. After taking a closer look at the book on the list, I noticed that most of it is about rnase l. I think this is too narrow a focus for this list, especially considering the cost of the book. I think this kind of choice could create bad feelings about the list. Not to mention that WPI research has thrown some doubt into this area. So I removed the book and added link to a research article about rnase l.

    I've uploaded the changed list.

    "I don't know which NY Times to look at."

    Andrew, it was on the OP-ED pages on Wed., Oct., 21, 2009. I believe it's also on the WPI website. I'll check around for you when I get freed up.

    Me again. Since I first posted my list I have made substantial changes to it. The recent feedback I got it that it is far superior to my first list, especially in terms of organization and presentation. Some content has changed too. I hope those of you who downloaded my earlier versions will look at where it is now. I think I've hit on something that removes the "overwhelm" problem it had before.
