CFS Central: No More Psychological Studies, An Editorial

:CBSM is something most patients learn over time.  They learn, among other things, to pace themselves, to distract themselves, to seek support, and to break an overwhelming project down to bite-size pieces. Are those techniques helpful?  Yes.  Do they get patients back to work or school?  No.  Do they enable patients to socialize with their friends and family regularly, or lead normal lives?  No. 

"When Antoni says that CBSM is used on HIV/AIDS and cancer patients with success, I say those patients also have retroviral and chemotherapies, and that is where the real benefits come."
