I had sort of mixed feelings when I read his article. But overall I was pleased.
At least from my experience, this is as much as one can expect, less than we can dream of, and we all know that it is more than we can count on.
And yes, the CDC in its 25 years of deliberately trying to marginalized us has cast itself as adverse to the well-being of real CFS patients. Why hasn't the CDC ever attempted to investigate the efficacy of treating all of those co-infections that are so poorly controlled by our poor little abused and traumatized psyches/immune systems?
If, when published, the results of the FDA/NIH paper continue to support the conclusions of the original Science paper, the pent up rage that will be directed at the CDC will be like nothing they have ever experienced before. In the end, I'd rather be in my shoes with the disease than in their shoes having to defend their past.
