    Me too. Try it again @ProudActivist, as Sci hub seemed a bit flaky for me recently.

    Thanks @Sly Saint
    Guys, Sci-hub is a pirate website, right? Has it ever been offline for legal issues? I want to donate but I know nothing about bitcoins. I know, techyidiot.

    I can't read it all, it's too long for me, but from the first few parts this is a seriously well-researched and -informed portrait of how disabling ME is. It describes the variability and severity of impairment and how there need to be special accommodations to genuinely help us.

    This is Barbara Comerford's and RĂ­chard Neal Podell's first publication (not sure if this is overall or on frontiers). Good clear-headed start.

    Excellent, written by disability lawyers. For USA socials security disability and private disability insurance claims.

    Section on the adult and the need to have a daily written journal of ME effect on activity by the ME patient--this is crucial. Well done!

    This will be very useful for patients, doctors, and lawyers
