    Some may wonder why I am researching Freud given that its the modern biopsychosocial view of CFS and ME that I am aiming at. Here is a quote from Richard Websters book "Why Freud Was Wrong", from an academic called Frank Sulloway:

    " The expedient denial and refashioning of history has been an indispensible part of the psychoanalytic process. Perhaps more remarkable still is the degree to which the whole process of historical censorship, distortion, embellishment, and propaganda has been effected with the co-operation of psychoanalysts who would instantly proclaim such phenomena as 'neurotic' if they spotted them in anyone else." p. 238

    The modern psychobabble movement are doing little Freud didn't do first. Don't like the way the theory fits the evidence? Ignore criticism and reformulate things so that some other untestable line of argument explains it!

    Bye, Alex
