I am still waiting for the public apologies from all the more prominent voices in the medical community that dismissed fibromyalgia and CFS as psychogenic or "bio-psycho-social" illnesses. We are way past due.
I'm hoping that something will come out of this, and, also, the work of Ron Davies. However, having had CFS/ME for 26 years now, I'm not too optimistic anymore. There have been too many times research hasn't worked out the way we would like it to.
I re-posted the Stanford URL on the current Porchlight thread. It confirms what we
knew all along. We are not people seeking attention; not mentally ill, lazy, liars, or
The porch BTW is a thread that provides some of what meany of us miss. A social
life. People talk about their medical problems, but also about what's going on in their
life: pets, pet peeves, recipes, weddings, funerals, kids, etc. Drop by any time.
