    its not even just the idea ideology - its self promotion- lead cbt trials, get funded, get promoted---£1 million trial= professorship

    listen to Wearden's professorial talk 'the mrc advertised funding so we went after it'

    White wrote letters to mrc saying he will apply for money

    and so on ...

    I know it's not good but I thought being a bit ad hominem today could help me digest that some people still like to think the SMILE trial was a properly designed and conducted randomised controlled trial.

    I'd prefer to be waterboarded than stand up and give such a self-congratulatory presentation as that.

    She has children! How can she actually think that other mothers don’t know their own children, or feel differently towards their children than she does towards her own? What would she want for her children if they got ME?

    She recommended the Lightning Process to an old school friend whose son was diagnosed with CFS!

    Found this in my drafts folder and thought it didn't warrant an own thread so just leave it here. (From July, didn't check for updates)

    I did some search on PROSPERO (International Prospective Register of Systematic Reviews)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PROSPERO
    There seem to be quite a couple of PROSPERO-registered systematic reviews for which Esther Crawley was a co-applicant and to which the concern mentioned in Wikipedia applies (listed by PROSPERO as "ongoing" but started some years ago and now way beyond the anticipated completion date).

    (Edited to add: don't remember if I checked whether the studies have been published, maybe with a slightly different title.)

    Recovery in paediatric CFS/ME
    https://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/display_record.php?RecordID=9303

    Using MRI as a neuroimaging technique to investigate Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis: a systematic review
    https://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/display_record.php?RecordID=50569

    Children’s experiences of living with CFS/ME: a systematic review and synthesis of qualitative studies
    https://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/display_record.php?RecordID=9896

    Maria Loades, Esther Crawley. Systematic review of depression in paediatric CFS/ME
    https://www.crd.york.ac.uk/prospero/display_record.php?ID=CRD42015016813

    Systematic review of the relationship between cortisol levels and CFS in children
    https://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/display_record.php?RecordID=29144

    This one is registered as completed but couldn't find it published:

    Systematic review for the treatment of CFS/ME via dietary manipulation/nutritional supplementation
    https://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/display_record.php?RecordID=10756

    (Edited to fix a URL & spelling)
