    Yes, if someone knows they are not very much worse, yet definitely more than a little worse, then it's something of a Hobson's choice. I agree they will very possibly go for being a little worse.

    Ahhh!!! I’m feeling rather stressed after my parents forwarded me the following email they received from a doctor friend of theirs:

    “Here it is as a PDF. Problems downloading, let me know. I hope it is useful. A quick perusal gives me the impression it's the real deal.
    Remember, the fact that she has had CBT in the past is no guide to its present utility.”


    The attached PDF was the Wessely/Chalder paper being discussed in this thread :( :wtf: :banghead:

    I’ve suggested that my parents send their doctor friend a link to David Tuller’s blog about this paper. Thank goodness for David Tuller! And thank goodness for this forum and all the amazing work you wonderful people are doing. Seriously, I don’t know where I’d be without you all.
