The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    Beware: would the muppets aka psychiatrists at CFS clinics and GPs with false illness beliefs inflict this on their sedentary or even bedbound ME patients?

    Prescribe me some amphetamines then. At least I could sell it at the local park, as compensation for the disability I'm not receiving.

    We would never qualify for the Olympics if we went down this route.

    I personally think that more experts could use some serious psychoactive medication to stop them making silly claims. :ninja:

    I thought it was a problem of too much psychoactive medication?

    So a pill can potentially take control of someone's body, lift them out of their couch and make their legs start striding at pace without any input from them? And or magically make them interested in exercise all of the sudden. Funny stuff.

    Sex used to have that effect on me.

    Is that what they have packaged here? Sex drive in a pill?

    The Internet will undo that benefit, too, I suspect...:)
