    An article by Margaret Williams has been published in the Journal of Invest in ME which documents immune system abnormalities in ME from 1983 to 2011. This article will be an important resource for researchers, clinicians and patients.

    Excellent work as always from Margaret Williams! I wasn't aware of the recent Wessley paper advocating use of the term 'functional' disorder to describe ME specifically because of the benefit that it can be used to deceive patients!

    :rolleyes:
    So Wessely thinks we have "functional" disorder! Well I'm I am quite certain that he has "dysfunctional" disorder but I'm not about to waste my precious energy telling the whole world in a paper, his behavior is evidence enough. :thumbdown:
