    @Brian Hughes, I am reading 'Psychology in Crisis' with great interest. It is the first book I hope to finish for a number of years. Brain fog means difficulty in integrating information over longer sections of text, so each chapter has to be reread several times. Currently about a month in and on Chapter 5.

    As someone with ME I really value your challenging of the appalling science that is harming so many people, though as a psychology graduate it is really depressing that you have to address an ongoing complacency about methodological problems well known over forty years ago.

    Hopefully your work will be a catalyst for real change.

    I'm really hoping the good psychologists and psychiatrists will see the mounting problems of letting a fringe minority of quacks harming the reputation of their profession.

    This rise of magical thinking is bad for everyone and may usher in a serious crisis of confidence in those two specialities' ability to regulate themselves.
