ME: Info


     CFS, along with PVFS and ME, are listed by the WHO since 1992 under the ICD-10 G93.3 as an organic brain disease and are specifically excluded from a psychiatric listing under F48
     -- From Neuroskeptic's Blog
    "We never hurt each other but by error or by malice."
     -- (Sir Robert Chambers/Dr. Johnson,
     A Course of Lectures on the English Law, vol I)

I just found that the truly EXCELLENT site InvestInMe got even more excellent.

Note that above link is to the page that gives the links. Two other excellent parts of the InvestInMe site for those without much knowledge about ME

Check it out!

"Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!

No change, no pause, no hope! Yet I endure.
I ask the Earth, have not the mountains felt?
I ask yon Heaven, the all-beholding Sun,
Has it not seen? The Sea, in storm or calm,
Heaven's ever-changing Shadow, spread below,
Have its deaf waves not heard my agony?
Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!
     - (Shelley, "Prometheus Unbound") 

    "It was from this time that I developed my way of judging the Chinese by dividing them into two kinds: one humane and one not. "
