    This isn't a scandal. A scandal is minor social mistake, like a politician having an affair and then making the mistake of being caught. This is a inter-generational crisis affecting millions world wide. It occurs to me something similar might have happened with neurasthenia. Initially it sounded almost identical to ME, then it broadened to cover everything that might be nervous exhaustion, and then it fractured into many separate diagnoses. How long will it take for that to happen with CFS? How come medical authoriies haven't learnt from mistakes made in the early twentieth century? Its a collossal systemic blunder repeating itself, and has already brought the medical profession into disrepute for many of us.

    Bye, Alex
