    The more I read about psychology, the more that I think that psychosocial approach to CFS is likely to have caused real psychological harm to patients.

    These may be of interest to others... or may not. It could be that these posts present a misleading view of the evidence... I've not look at the original papers myself, so have no idea. A lot of research in these areas does seem a bit weak... so you've been warned.
