    Another green bottle falls off the wall for the psykes.

    Seriously though my ex-wife developed bulemia and I wonder sometimes if there was connection between it and ME. It is interesting that they are saying dysfunctioning mtochondria could be to blame.

    I have slow onset cfs/me. There was a time when I was barely eating anything and was really drawn to stressful activities. I now believe that this was the case because it biologically helped my body battle inflammation in my brain.

    Self starvation causes cortisol to rise (in order to stabilize blood sugar), this is anti inflammatory and can uplift mood.

    I remember if I just sat around and relaxed I would feel groggy and depressed, but if I kept extremely busy and didn't eat much I felt great. You can guess the long term negative effects of that lifestyle!
