Overall this is pretty good. It does say that one of the symptoms is "six months or more of malaise after exercise" but I think overall conveys a good sense of the horror of this illness. One of the persons interviewed is homeless and living in his car because of this illness.

And it mentions the gross disparity in 2014 NIH research funding between ME/CFS ($5 per patient), MS ($255), lupus ($283) and AIDS ($2,482).

The article also quotes Emily Taylor of Solve ME/CFS. :nerd:
