Despite Our Losses, People with ME/CFS Want More
We've been cheated by ME/CFS and we all know it. That's a no-brainer, if you'll pardon the cognitive pun. And loss didn't just result from the bad things that befell us. It also encompasses the good things that just ... never came. The absence of bounty. Of wholeness. Of peace.

Psych Study States Mood Disorders Not an Integral Part of ME/CFS

    Yes ME/CFS patients have an increased rate of mood disorders but is ME/CFS a psychological disorder? Some people still apparently think it is. This study took ME/CFS patients with mood disorders and treated them for their mood disorders (curing many of them of their mood problems). But did they still have ME/CFS afterwards? If I'm reading this study right - yes they did - fixing their mood disorders must have made those patients feel better but it apparently didn't help much with their ME/CFS.
