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.

    Just turned the radio on for the 1 pm news and heard this trailer asking for experience of treatments. Someone might wish to contribute.

    LOL you beat me to it.
    My mother-in-law just phoned me to tell me this will be on tomorrow:
    Radio 4 at 12.15 Tuesday 26th Sept.
    Apparently it was announced as she was listening to R4 - no details about who would be answering the phone in questions.
    Perhaps @charles shepherd or @Jonathan Edwards know more?

    More patient experiences which will help to show the illness for what it truly is - currently a girl speaking who was made much worse by CBT and GET - had to start using a wheelchair having previously not done so.

    Good lord creepy doesn't half go on! Lying too as to how many in the trial - she said 100 I think.

    Oh, now she's saying it's 3-5 different illnesses.

    Oh and Charles didn't get a reply back to her...which is Annoying. Maybe it was prerecorded interviews?

    They did say though that this is the biggest telephone response they have had for that programme
