Neuro(logist)-M.E. Militant

The Dutch neurologist Emile Keuter, a “prominent” figure in the Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms (MUPS) world referred to the ME community as the “militant CFS/ME community”. He ends his blog by claiming that CBT seems to be reasonably effective against physical fatigue but not with ME patients and makes the suggestive remark by saying “You may guess why”. I had to respond!!!

I’m raising awareness for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) better known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) through (performance) art. M.E. is a debilitating neuroimmune disease affecting 17 million children & adults worldwide. The name CFS wrongly suggests that this illness is all about chronic fatigue or rather chronic exhaustion. I asked some my fantastic friends, who are (former) professional dancers and fellow artists to help me explain.
