    It's just a letter to the journal, not a paper published by them.

    Excellent letter. I sent a link to Healthwise. No response, nor do I expect one. GET happily lives on at Healthwise.

    I'm absolutely speechless. How completely wrong I was.

    Healthwise just contacted me. I'll make a separate post about this later.

    Suffice it to say that after reviewing all my input, Healthwise has decided to remove all GET/CBT from their ME/CFS content this fall. Healthwise content is used by many major healthcare providers in the United States, including Kaiser Permanente.

    A most sincere thank you, @FrankTwisk. You were the straw that broke Healthwise's back, so to speak.

    Wow, well done @Webdog! Good for you - and all the other ME patients who will benefit from your hard work and persistence :emoji_dart::emoji_trophy:

    It seems mountains can be moved after all...

    I'd like to take credit, but I was merely continuously passing along the excellent work done by numerous others. They are the real heroes.

    Yes, but you also did excellently in passing it on, well done, that's quite something!
