A Sample Day In The World Of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Johnny Nowhere’s “A Sample Day In The World of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”

Captain's Blog; Stardate: 2016

Successfully dragging myself from the bed at 6:58, I’d gotten dressed. As I sat there resting afterward, I found myself mulling over the discussion that I’d had with five new friends that I had discovered on Twitter the day before.

A lively exchange ensued, an we typed freely as if we’d known one another for years, and in a way – we had. We all suffer through the same relative hell. I can really connect with someone who speaks my language. No one else does.

“I need to get in there to try and start writing while my brain is fresh.” I told myself.


‘Fresh’ is a relative term these days. I knew that by 11:30 – which in normality, would’ve been my “wide awake and running on all eight cylinders” time – I would be approaching worthlessness. On a good day, I might even be able to stave…

How To Make Sure An Invisible Disease Stays That Way

Yes, this is actually being done!

CFS Untied

Update to CFS – The Invisibled Disease – by Khaly Castle

Would you like a dose of outrage?  Try this.  30 years later, and we have proof.  Not proof that this illness is real.  Not proof that it is biological.  We know these things.  No, I’m talking about proof that the research community at large IS NOT INTERESTED IN RESEARCHING THIS ILLNESS.  NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT.

Originally published and completely written by Erik Johnson on September 8, 2015, “CFS – The Invisibled Disease” recounted the history of how a syndrome was made to disappear before our very eyes.


Erik’s article documents the events that culminated in the creation and subsequent undermining of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  He says:

Two teachers from the Truckee teachers lounge happened to be in Peterson’s office when CDC epidemiologist Gary Holmes was there.  They asked to see him for something that was on…

“Cooking The Books” and Margaret Williams 2016 Letter Re PACE Trial



“Cooking The Books” and Margaret Williams 9/2016 letter “PROOF POSITIVE ? (REVISITED)” on the PACE Trial


Basically, Margaret Williams points out more details in how the PACE Team “Cooked The Books” and with their own money to boot!!!!


How stupid can one be- they are stupid crooks that’s why!


I noticed, everyone spends years on debating “scientific” data. If everyone would look at how the “books are being cooked”, we would solve these matters sooner!




Stop being “politically correct” and worrying if your insulting some “supposed” “top” guy at a “supposed” research institution.




Here are a few examples in the letter that is in the link below:



“Facts to be considered:


1. Peter White has used his own money, as well charitable money and public money, in order to lobby support for his belief that ME/CFS is a psycho-behavioural disorder that can be overcome through “cognitive restructuring” and graded aerobic exercise


2. he has egregiously used large sums of public money (£250,000) to prevent the disclosure of data that would falsify his belief


3. for nearly 30 years, he has ignored evidence that disproves his belief, including evidence from his own trials


4. he has failed to correct errors of fact after being alerted to them


5. he has consistently failed to disclose significant financial, institutional and ideological conflicts of interest


6. he has been in breach of his NHS contractual obligations in that he has persistently ignored mandatory directives and has wilfully encouraged other clinicians to do the same


7. as a consequence of his actions:


-money which should have been used for biomedical research into the aetiology of ME/CFS has been diverted to fund studies into therapies which were already known to be ineffective and even harmful


– patients have been stigmatised as sociopaths and malingerers who refuse to accept they have a behavioural disorder,

– patients have been denied financial support from private insurers for whom Peter White and his colleagues work,

(for example, he was Chief Medical Officer for the giant re-insurer Swiss Re and was also CMO to Scottish Provident),

-and from the Department for Work and Pensions (where he was lead advisor on “CFS/ME”

-and was a prominent member of the group who re-wrote the chapter on “CFS/ME” in the DWP’s Disability Handbook used by Examining Medical Practitioners,

-by DWP decision-makers and by members of the Appeals Services Tribunals);

-he also works for the US Centres for Disease Control, and for defendants in legal actions (BMC Health Services Research 2003:3:25)

– patients with ME/CFS have been wrongfully sectioned and detained under the Mental Health Act

– clinicians who oppose his views about ME/CFS have been sanctioned by the General Medical Council and prevented from working.”





Unfortunately we have gangsters in our field, and there are more, all you have to do is look around and pay attention!


Crooks, gangsters, medical researchers included, etc.. always leave a paper trail and most of it is online now.



Before you donate your money to research, do your own research to see where the money is going!



Hopefully more people start paying attention to these details!




Thankyou Margaret Williams for another awesome piece of investigation!

The #CoyneEffect: Is the ME Community Stepping Up or Backing Down?

Thankyou Jeannette!!!!

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.” – Tim Fields

Thoughts About M.E.

I have received a number of messages from members of the community inquiring about my absence from ME advocacy and about my health. I deeply appreciate the concerns and thoughtfulness. James David Chapman recently tweeted:


I posted a series of tweets in reply to James, which are reproduced below, because the tweets should be read in succession, as each builds on the prior ones. This, obviously, scratches only the surface of the effects on the community of Coyne’s rampage against ME advocates. But I am not well enough to write a blog post fleshing out the topics of my tweets.

I apologize for the incomplete list of those who have been targeted by Coyne, by public or private attacks or threats or by being aggressively blocked on social media. Louise Reed was one of the targets of Coyne’s vicious cyberbullying who is not mentioned below because I didn’t have enough…

Why The NIH Pathways To Prevention Systematic Review For M.E. and CFS Is Negligent!

The Other Side Of The Stretcher

Why The NIH Pathways To Prevention Systematic Review For M.E. and CFS Is Negligent!

An Explanation!

First I want to say, I became an Registered Nurse in 1985. So my point of view is not of a patient, it is as of an R.N.

When I decided to take a look at the Pathways to Prevention Systematic Review for M.E. I saw right away that it was clearly negligent and harmful to M.E. patients.

I then thought the medical people who have this illness need to start speaking up about the negligence we have witnessed the last 20+ years. What I wrote below is also part of the letters that I also have written Beth Collins Sharpe AHRQ, and Dr. Francis Collins.

The authors who were paid to write the NIH Pathways To Prevention (P2P) Systematic For M.E. obviously did not have M.E. expertise, because they wrote a negligent document recommending unsafe non…

Dr Ben Goldacre, Online Abuse, Bullying and the Suicide of a Gentle British Doctor

________________Child Health Safety_________________

Dr Ben Goldacre engages in online bullying and abuse and his BadScience forum is a notorious centre for some of what seem to be amongst the worst of the internet’s trolls, bullies and abusers.

So when a troubled gentle soul takes his own life after years of bullying, abuse and harassment from some from Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience forum, Ben Goldacre bears a heavy responsibility. 

On Thursday August 15th 2013 after years of relentless online bullying, abuse and harassment from some of Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience forum members, family physician Dr Mark Struthers took his own life.

In life Dr Struthers tried to take them on by challenging them online, posting comments on blogs as “Cybertiger“.  Their response routinely was to gang up in hordes to attack abuse and disparage him personally. 

Dr Mark Struthers was a gentle man and doctor who was well aware of the…

VaxXed: A Divine Meeting

It’s the scandal they don’t want you to know about; the movie they don’t want you to see. But that’s all the more reason to see it. Deep down, we’re all brats who don’t want to do what we’re told, right? Which is one reason I’m surprised by how many people are still lining up to get their shots like obedient goody-two-shoes. What happened to the Great American ideal of the rebel that this country was built on? Why are we so compliant when such behavior flies in the face of everything “American?”

This is a problem. Let’s see here…


Now, pretend I’m your mom or principal or intimidating authority figure of your choosing, and DO WHAT YOU’RE TOLD:

Don’t go see this movie. Really–you’ll hate it worse than Brussels sprouts. It will only make you think harder than you like to think, and question things that don’t need questioning…
