    She’s interviewing me on Wednesday and she seems to be doing her research. It sounds promising.

    I spoke to Catherine today. She’s very much on the biological side and said she’s spoken to many medical professionals and none of them subscribe to the bps model. She’s hoping to get the article in one of the mainstream papers, hopefully the Guardian.

    @chicaguapa did you tell her the Guardian doesn’t generally run anything without at least a tinge of BPS ideology

    Yes, I did! I said almost exactly that. And that it would therefore be very welcome if her article was published in there.

    Regarding the blood test she is wanting to talk about, don't we need to be careful here? Although Ron Davis' team are confident it discriminates between pwME and healthy controls, I don't think it is yet proven to discriminate between ME and other illnesses. I know Ron Davis says he's hopeful, but don't want to go counting our chickens before hatched, especially in public.
