We have read the PACE trial report in the Lancet. The PACE study, GET / CBT idea ,is a repeat of the old theory that the ME/CFS patient is imagining that they are sick. Exercise and psychological consultation will make them better. The PACE study is flawed. The only waty to combat PACE is to intitute a careful research project showing the ineffectiveness of GET/CBT.
I urge the various organizations. CFIDS ME/CFS foundations and institutes including WPI and Action ME to fund such a project . The Psychiatric group can not be allowed to strangle patients and new research with theIr old theories
