This BigPharma product is full of disinformaton and inaccuries. One of the most glaring is that it says GET and CBT are very effective "treatments". They try very hard to put the cart before the horse, that is, to prove that the organic symptoms observed, and no longer deniable, in CFS are caused by psychiatric events like "emotional neglect and sexual abuse" in childhood. In other words, your mother did it to you, typical of Freudian theorists who essentially are misogynists through and through. They even cite that old fraud, Freud, and use his favorite word "hysteria".
