Exactly right. As soon as our illness improves, we're away. Try stopping us! How could we regularly over-do activities and experience crashes otherwise? And look at Maria Grjerpe, who was prescribed Rituximab. She went from bed-ridden to orchestrating a highly motivated international fund-raising campaign, as soon as the Rituximab kicked in.
GET has been proven to be of nearly zero value, but has been hyped to be a cure.
Bob. If you are treating as per this hypothesis - a BIG IF as the author has said - YOU may need some graded return-to-normal help. What doctor is going to advise a patient who has been as disabled as some of us are - to go run a marathon straight away? Sure for others it might be different. But I'd be bloody cautious and want perhaps some programme that would gently increase my activity levels in accordance with the degree to which I am better able to manage. That could help if I do encounter difficulty. With this hypothesis and even with Rituximab it isn't like taking an aspirin - it can take time. It might not work.
