Esther, You say that people with CFS may be cut off from areas that may help and you speak about your friend who had an accident. Very sorry to hear about your friend. The thing that you may be forgetting is that there are people with CFS & ME all over the country going through psychological therapies every week. I was one of these and tragically for me they didn't help. I'll do anything to get better and I don't care what it is. People with CFS and ME are desperate to do things to make themselves better - regardless of whether they are psychological or physical therapies. The problem is, that just in my case, the psychological ones are not cures for us (nor the physical ones). We are obviously different from your friend injured in an accident. There is no one size fits all treatment for different diseases or injuries. I've had friends who have had accidents that are still injured - even after psych and physical therapies. If they worked we would be lining up to pay for them (as people with ME and CFS are paying for different experimental treatments each day).
