"'Of the many mysterious human illnesses that science has yet to unravel, ME/CFS has proven to be one of the most challenging,' Collins said in a statement. 'I am hopeful that renewed research focus will lead us toward identifying the cause of this perplexing and debilitating disease so that new prevention and treatment strategies can be developed.'"

Again, I am hopeful that this is the beginning of real commitment and engagement, but this statement is irritatingly disingenuous. We need for this narrative to not take root.
