If this is inappropriate or in the wrong place then i trust the mods will sort/move it. Having read somewhere on the boards today (I'm sorry I'm not sure who said it or on which thread & no strength to go back & find it, but it was on one of the recent positive PACE debunking related stories) that Alem's health was really not good at the moment, & as we celebrate all the great things starting to happen with the NYT article, the open letter to Psychological medicine, the reanalysis paper & it going open access (thanks MEA), & the excellent rejoinder to the PI's nonsense in response... i thought it would be nice to have a thread going alongside where we could send our prayers/thanks/positive healing vibes to Alem, without whose efforts & sacrifice none of this would be possible. So that maybe he or someone connected to him could come on here & see our messages & know how much we appreciate him & are praying/hoping for his swift recovery/improvement ... here's mine Dear Alem, just wanted you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers & will continue to be. You have sacrificed your health for the good of millions of us getting that data released & there will never be words enough to express my gratitude. The perfidious horror that is PACE is finally starting to be seen for what it is, things are beginning to change & none of it would have been possible without your FOI, your tenacity & courage. I am so very sorry that you are paying such a high price as a result. The ME community will never be able to say sufficient thank you to you, but just know we are with you & are praying for you & hoping you will make an improvement soon.
