but I did not understand who wrote the article you posted. You referred to him as a he; but I didn't get a name and would love to know if you have time to answer. Also thought under #3 where he says" the SS courts consider CFS the most disabling of the chronic deseases" to be quite a statement. Have never seen anything like this in print. (Of course in late stages, all diseases are very disabling.) This should be especially interesting to people currently going through the phase of being certified disabled and getting benefits. Thanks for the post!
