Could someone who is a more elegant writer than myself PLEASE write a comment in the mail. And then could we all green arrow it?

This ignorance and arrogance has to stop. They are missing up CFS with ME. Yuppie flu is obviously mentioned too.

There are threads on this right now. It has to do with a new paper by the people who brought us the PACE trial. It might help if you could post a link to the article online. We know of one such article, but it might not be the same one.

The dailymail is blocked in the country where i'm currently residing, just because of that; low quality, trashy and sensational journalism.

Considering that it is the most widely read newspaper in the UK it does matter.
I read the comments and generally everyone thinks we are lazy benefit scroungers.
How nice!

I know Worldbackwards!
It's like a drug, I just can't seem to stop even though I know it causes me great harm.
I despair about the British Nation when I read the comments (and the paper).
I think I am a masochist.
