    Through FOIA, I got copies of two draft agendas for the P2P Workshop. The overview framing of the meeting is the public health problem of "overwhelming fatigue or malaise" and more time is allocated to CBT/GET than to symptom based medication.

    Thank you for doing the FOIA's, Jennie.
    Needless to say -- this doesn't look good.

    Trying to find THE cause of, and THE treatment for fatigue is like trying to find THE cause of, and THE treatment for nausea, or fever, or any other superficial symptom. This approach is flawed from the start. Maybe the people behind this are simply incompetent and unable to see what is obvious, but I would say it's more likely that they know exactly what they're doing and want to obfuscate certain difficult health problems to avoid having to take responsibility.

    BINGO

    I don't have proof for either explanation, but I am really struggling to see how this approach makes sense to them. That view of the problem seems like another planet to me.
