This thread on pacing has been split from this thread: Consumer contested evidence: why the ME/CFS exercise dispute matters so much. Plos blog post by Hilda Bastian It is good, especially for someone from outside the usual ME advocacy circles. This definition of pacing bothered me though. I blame @Action for M.E. for it a lot more than Hilda Bastian. Pacing isn't a treatment that assures your condition stabilises or, much less, that recovery is achieved. Pacing doesn't involve 'very gradually increasing activities'. That sounds a lot more like 'graded exercise therapy' or the now more fashionable 'graded activity therapy'.
