    I've not read this paper, but it's been in the media recently, and it made me think about the way in which people are likely to respond, were they to suffer from some restriction in capabilities, and how this would interact with the psychosocial approach to CFS.

    It increasingly seems to me encouraging patients to believe that recovery is under personal control, that deconditioning of a fear/anxiety response to activity is the cause of their disability, etc, is likely to be exactly the wrong thing to do, even if you accept the starting assumptions of a biopsychosocial approach to medicine.

    Unfortunately I'm really busy (and have a cold), so I'm also just posting this link also in order to remind me to read the study properly when I have a chance (I've got a long and growing list of reading).
