ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    Highly interesting, but also a wasted opportunity.

    Agreed. But then much of the psychopsychiatry is not science. What are they to do?

    It's pretending to be science, so it would be nice if it's pointed out when it's failing to meet those claims :p

    Examing why intelligent people, educated people, and supposedly responsible and rational people, completely ignore and refuse to deal with bad psychiatry is one of the goals in my investigation. Its not going to come down to a simple answer, its a complex soup of issues at so very many levels.

    One issue an institute may face is that taking on big pharma is a huge ask. Taking them on and the psychopsych factions at the same times might be politically or pragmatically difficult. I can only hope that once they are fully established they widen their focus to include psychopsychiatry.
