I am still around, but unlike yesterday at long last slept tolerably well
- and found this morning that yesterday's
Nederlog contained many typing errors and unclarities, most of which
have now been corrected.
In exoneration: I generally type these and other pages on my site while
feeling fairly to very exhausted - is
improper word for folks with ME/CFS: it is not ordinary
"fatigue" or "tiredness", and doesn't quite feel like that either, but
worse, namely as if having run the marathon a brief while ago - and I
generally do so in one sitting, writing very fast, and then upload, after
which I generally collapse into bed to recuperate.
Thus also yesterday, but sometimes this comes with more mistakes and
typos than can be fairly imposed on my readers.
Anyway... I corrected it, and it should be
mostly clear now.
As to the subject of my title:
Dr. Speedy is an Australian GP - a genuine medical doctor - with ME, who
has an interesting and
useful blogging site I have mentioned repeatedly before. I missed
what follows below, that on his site is dated February 22 last, and of
which I only quote the beginning. You can find all of it by clicking on
the title that follows.
First a small terminological clarification for those ignorant about ME:
The English psychiatric sadists who falsify ME in the name of 'evidence
based medicine' - if you read that ('evidence based medicine') you
ought to know you are probably being shammed and lied to, as
it is a pleonasm in real science, and lying propaganda outside it - also
select such acronyms as falsify most, much like
Stalin named his
main propaganda tool "The Truth" ("Pravda", in Russian):
Thus "The NICE Guidelines" abbreviate the "National Institute for Health
and Clinical Excellence", which in my experience should read the
"National Institute for Crap and Excrescence in the name of 'evidence
Similarly, because many patients with ME/CFS found some relief by a
careful pacing of their activities, unlike what the medical frauds of
"The NICE Guidelines" prescribe, which is exercise till you drop
(preferably dead, it must be assumed, as far as the British health
authorities are concerned, when "caring" for patients with ME/CFS), and
the medical fraud, sadist, and psychiatrist Peter Denton White
accordingly had the mental sickness to call his shit "Pacing,
graded Activity and Cognitive behaviour therapy: a
randomised Evaluation" - and by "randomised Evaluation"
this crapping pseudoscientist means "'evidence based medicine' in which
everyone who has ME as described by Komaroff or the Canada
Criterions - see below - have been carefully excluded on purpose, so as
to falsify what the real facts for persons who are really ill with ME
This having been clarified, here is the beginning of Dr. Speedy's quite
justified satirical take:
The Dr. Speedy Network of Clinical Excellence has been conducting
a PACE (Properly Acquiring Clinical Evidence) trial over the last
80 years or so.
This was a miracle in itself, as we only had a budget of five
pounds. This time however, we have been conducting a PACE trial
including ME patients.
We have deliberately steered away from wasting billions of
taxpayers money on a trial that excluded the patients that were
supposed to be in the trial and which came to conclusions that
were written before the trial had even started.
We used the five pounds to buy the groundbreaking book by Dr.
Melvin Ramsay, which describes the outbreak of ME in the Royal
Free Hospital in London in 1955. He only included patients who had
fallen ill with ME. Hysterical psychiatrist were deliberately
excluded before he had even started to write his book.
The answer to what is causing ME can be found in this book. The
only thing one has to do, is read the book and use the thinking
part of our brain. The part which harbors the Pinocchio gene,
prevalent in CBT psychiatrists, is destroyed by first undergoing a
few sessions of Lightning Therapy.
There are few things that stand out if you read the book.
First of all, chronic fatigue doesn't feature in this book about
Secondly, a cardinal feature of ME is muscle fatigue, i.e. muscle
weakness, with an abnormally delayed recovery, which can take days
or weeks, after doing trivial things.
The other thing, which becomes clear straight away is that we've
had similar small epidemics, always in closely knit communities.
Dr. Ramsay also described the phenomenon that a few weeks after
the initial outbreak there was another one, this time a lot
smaller, and this continued for about 5 to 6 month after the

P.S. Corrections have to be made later, if any.
As to acronyms, I can do it too:
"PACE" = "Peter denton white's Artful Crapulous Excrements"
= "Pathetic Artful lying
& degrading, demeaning, sadistic, fraudulent Clinical Evasions"
Assisted Conmanship's Excreta"
