Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    OK folks, as FITNET-gate rumbles on I think it is time to cash in.

    So, from now until Christmas every time a piece of propaganda (take it as read this is all orchestrated by the SMC) appears in the mainstream press there are prizes for each instance (*) of the following:

    conflation of CFS and ME ...................................... £1 to Invest in Me
    "CBT can change your biology"...... ....................... £1
    "we never said it was a psychological illness" ....... £1
    sciency waffle to try and sound credible................. £1
    hostile activists....................................................... £1

    ~won't somebody think of the chiiildren~ .............. £1 (plus bonus ! £1 to TYMES)


    I'll keep a nice little chart, and staring with the article in New Scientist today we hit every single one, so that's £7 already.


    (*) small print: will count one instance per article, up to a cap of £100 - or I'll be bankrupt !

    Am adding 2 new categories to check off:

    ... claiming cure from null results ...
    ... "it's not one illness" ...

    and upping the IiME payout for ~the children~

    This gives a round £10

    So adding in yesterday's (Nov 5th) EC interview on BBC radio Bristol - another full card - total £20 already.

    And a bump to add : I've an idea how a modified version of this could be spread a bit wider as a fund-raising and publicity exercise.

    *** Is there anyone who uses facebook who'd like to partner up on this ? *** (or MEAnetwork, idk if it's the sort of thing they host ?)

    OK, bit delayed but donations have now been made. Lost track somewhat so rounded up, at least proper ME research can benefit.
