I have to laugh when ignorants quote "some people say they have ME just so they can claim benefits"
Had you ever been ill and claimed benefits then you would know how demoralising it is not only to claim benefits, but to live in poverty and not have a job like every other "normal" person.
XMRV/MLV Whittemore Peterson - please research these.
The reason people try these half cocked therapies is because hardly any scientific research into ME has taken place and so people are nothing but desperate to get better! ME first occurred in the 1950's and still, over fifty years later people are still facing ignorant jibs about being work dodgers.
ME is a multi system, neurological illness that has similar symptoms to MS.
I would like how some of you would cope with an physical illness that merits hardly any research and is treated with Cognitive Behavioural therapy with patients being left to fend for themselves!
