    No date on the page, but it seems recent.
    CF in the title.
    The advices are AfME's, not completely BS, but not satisfactory either:
    Did the journalist misunderstood?

    (from 2014 so a clue as to age of article maybe?)

    "Dow has over two decades of experience of working in the media and with charities. After leaving university, he became a radio journalist, working in both the commercial sector and the BBC before moving into the third sector. He has acted as Head of Campaigns for the Royal National Institute for Deaf People (now called Action on Hearing Loss), and has also worked as Campaigns and Press Manager for Action for M.E and INDICT respectively. Prior to his role at the Royal College of Paediatrics & Child Health, Dow was Deputy Director of Communications at the School Food Trust, following Jamie Oliver’s high profile school dinners campaign"

    Talking complete rubbish by the second sentence. Working towards recovery will make you crash and could cause a permanent decline. Work towards defining your limits and staying within them would be much better advice. If you're lucky a little recovery might follow, but don't count on it.

    I've seen so many different sorts of people complain about the 'corporate' charity types who seem to have come to dominate UK charities over the last two decades.

    I've switched to my laptop, too, and now I can't see the date either.

    I think that the Daily Mail might do this intentionally so that their stories do re-appear for people searching for 'recent' web-pages.

    I think a possible way of spotting these repeats is the :
    "0 Comments" and
    "We are no longer accepting comments on this article"
