    Good to see mainstream media no longer pushing graded exercise, and even pointing out harms. Nice jab at the CDC's decades of negligence. Now if they would just stop calling it "chronic fatigue syndrome". :emoji_bicyclist::emoji_cartwheel::emoji_lifter::emoji_skier::dead:

    Reader's Digest is something of a British institution, and many people implicitly trust its content. It's good to see short, simple pieces like this permeating out into this sort of media.

    Everything about ME is decades overdue, and we could slam everything with that cudgel if we so wished, but it would be pointless. The past is past, and we have to move on.

    The point I'm making is that when something like this appears in RD, it is a powerful indication that we are living through a period off change - possibly rapid and dramatic change. Such events are not always obvious from within at the time, only afterwards when looked back on as history. But I think the signs are there, and that this is one of them - small but significant. Not a time for complacency, far from it, but a time for belief that things are changing, and striving harder than ever to ensure that.

    indeed, often to be found in dentists/doctors waiting rooms (although usually several years out of date); wonder if Wessely is a subscriber...
