    Content is mostly good...you might disagree with the page 14 of the slides on the origin of the illness

    Genetic predisposition >> Psychosocial background >> triggering event (infection)

    Also the first line of the conclusion Page 47 of the slides

    "CFS/ME is a chronic disabling disease with a genetic background, triggered by infection and with a link to psychosocial stressors"

    Overall I thought it was a great presentation from Prof N. I read transcript, haven't seen slides.

    There is a particularly offensive comment in the Q & A about how personality affects self-reports on fatigue, pain and depression. Comments on how those with a high neuroticism and low consscientiousness report more fatigue,pain and depression!!
