@Ravn brought this article in a NZ magazine to our attention in the New Zealand thread. Marc Wilson is a regular columnist in the Listener, a mainstream magazine in New Zealand that is currently claiming to be New Zealand's Bestselling Current Affairs Magazine (although I imagine a lot of people only get their news online these days). Wilson's column in the May 11-17 edition talks generally about how poor thinking can impact on how people manage their illnesses. The irony of following that statement with an endorsement of CBT for CFS later in the article is sadly lost on Wilson. Wilson talks about a study by Moss-Morris: And presumably CBT: On the positive side, Wilson doesn't doubt the seriousness of CFS, mentioning "hugely debilitating fatigue". He says that we don't know "exactly what's going on with CFS, but we do know sufferers have abnormal immune systems". He notes that there is no treatment for CFS (but does quote health navigator as saying that reducing stress and practising mindfulness meditation may help). And, the reported 15% improvement in quality of life from changing how you think is hardly a cure. So, it could be worse. The article may turn up online at noted.co.nz/the-listener.
