    Excellent letter, @Keela Too. You make your points very clearly and well. I hope they read it and take it seriously.

    Excellent letter. I like the way you have noted how the PACE authors have never set the record straight for PwME (despite their being best placed to do so, and despite their proclamations of only wanting to do their best for PwME).

    Very useful. It's a shame they don't do this. I find pacing with a HR monitor really useful.

    This helps, but I do question the use on the POTs plp. If I go by mine, I would literally do nothing, and also I have a question that no doctor has been able to answer, Once I am on beta blockers, how do I know what my new AT is??? Do I use the old one? or do I have a new one???? How do I pace beta blocker vs not???

    I agree. I think in the end you learn your own personal boundaries. I have always has a higher than average HR and lower than average blood pressure.

    Also Sue Jackson has talked about beta blockers on her blog.

    I was disappointed when after having paid to see an M.E. specialist privately I was seeing my GP about a new sick note. I tried telling her that specialist had said I needed to use a heart rate monitor but she just wasn’t interested.

    Dr Ms petition is now on 5500 still ticking over but would be good if it could get more signatures before the deadline- 2 weeks to go I think.

    I've been making this observation over quite a long time now, because NI credits are linked to what kind of benefits you get.

    I wonder when that will be. I can imagine it won't be soon.
