    Most of these annoy the piss out of me, but this one made me chuckle.

    The title by itself tells us much.

    Apart from the laughable inaccuracies, this article sounds like it was written by a 12-year-old. Actually, I take that back, out of respect for 12-year-olds!

    I think there should be a 'not a recommendation' forum section for articles like this to fester in. That paragraph about how we're ashamed to talk about our disease! Grrrr

    Agreed.
    Though those with chronic fatigue syndrome might not understand the article (because it is badly written, full of mis-information, etc.)

    (I don't think much of anything in this article applies to people with ME.)

    Particularly enjoyed the stunningly attractive woman lifting weights and looking purposeful.
    All of them? I want this to go on: "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients are all Pisces. They enjoy eating vol au vents, but only if they contain curried chicken. Their favourite shape is the octagon. They are fans of the number 29 and believe that John F. Kennedy will one day return in the shape of an enormous turnip..."

    Put it in the comments. ;). Should we mention our psychosomatic brain-morphing super powers, or should we keep that secret for now? :ninja:

    I posted a comment on their site that I hope addresses some of the glaring inaccuracies. Hopefully the moderator will allow it. So far their article averages one star out of five, so perhaps they will get the message that they missed the mark.
