So they're not really qualified in very much, then? As pollycbr says, the plot thickens. And the following was posted on the WPI Facebook page by a Dutch fan. I presume the "Wessely-clones" she refers to are van der Meer and Bleijenberg. [Quote starts] I didn't know van Kuppeveld untill the study. But the fact he is linked to the Radboud University in Nijmegen made me very suspicious (to say the least). At least two "Wessely-clones" are working there AND they have a "Chronic Fatigue Knowledge Centre". Patients are selected beforehand (you have to be able to travel to Nijmegen -would be a small miracle in my case- you must'nt be involved in any procedure to get disability pension, you may not take any drugs e.g. see other doctors or follow other doctor's protocol and when you're accepted you're not allowed to have contact with other sufferers!!). After all that you may follow CBT..... I hope the letter from Mrs. Whittemore and this publication will change our government's / press' and general public's view, they all believed these so-called doctors claiming 70% of patients could be cured or at least feel much better after CBT treatment!!!! If the press wants to publish anything on ME they first call Nijmegen....we've been trying to fight this for years, with no success up till now. Worse even, up till a few years back our only ME patient organization supported Nijmegen!!
