    Tsk, he's obviously new to the scene, that's normally spelt vexatious... ;)

    Belle and Sebastian? Fey indie bands? I had no idea this was part of the stereotype. Clearly I'm totally off-message here. :(:(

    I also sent him Dr Charles Lapp's talk in Auckland, which he acknowledged by liking - some people use like as a bookmark, some just to acknowledge receipt of a tweet. So I don't know if he'll look at it or not, but I hope he does. It has a lot of useful info in it, including Institute of Medicine report, SEID, POTS, mentions the Rituximab research and the possible mechanism behind it.

    Was good to see his article anyway. Think that might be the second one this week from the Scotsman, if I remember correctly.

    Wow! So good!

    If only we could get the English newspapers to cover ME so well. Ah, but we have the SMC poisoning their minds. Sigh!
