This is my letter in the lastest edition of Nature: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-03055-1 I wonder if I should have pushed for stronger language, but sometimes it is necessary to turn down the volume in order to be heard. And I’m pleased to have been able to raise concerns about CBT, GET, PACE and Cochrane, as well as the need for a proper scientific and biomedical approach to research. It feels like a sign of progress that a journal like Nature is willing to publish such a letter. Nature didn’t know about my diagnosis or lack of qualifications when my letter was accepted (due to ME, I don’t have a degree let alone a doctorate). However, when I volunteered the information, the Editor asked if I would be willing to disclose that I have ME. I would have preferred not to, as I didn’t feel it was relevant to the argument, but I didn’t feel strongly about it and agreed to compromise as they acquiesced to several of my requests during the editing process. Thanks to Tom and others on S4ME for their help and feedback prior to submission.
