    Has he chronic Fatigue or M.E....wish syndrome could at least be added to chronic Fatigue.....as we all know chronic Fatigue is not M.E. I'm not sure about this being a super idea.

    I am not sure I understand. He has ME, hasn't he?

    In this recent interview with Murdoch, he says he got sick with ME/CFS in 1990.

    Oh, it's in the video! Sorry, I didn't catch it first time I saw it. As I understood it he talks about chronic fatigue as a symptom, and ME as the name of the disease, so no referral to the disease as chronic fatigue. :)

    Edit to add: And on wikipedia it says he came down with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

    When all the doctors keep saying chronic fatigue then its easy to slip into that language.

    Maybe....I know I'm allergic to the term chronic fatigue...and no way wud I ever use it as it's the most feeble description of such a horrible illness.
