We're in good company!

Watergate Trivia: The wife of attorney general John Mitchell and an early
member of CRP (Committee to Re-Elect the President), Martha Mitchell
sounded a frequent warning about the committee's misdeeds. But her outsized
personality and rumoured drinking problem led many to disregard her. Later,
psychologists coined the phrase "Martha Mitchell effect", used when people are
diagnosed as mentally ill because they're telling a truth that seems too
outrageous to believe. - BBC News

The truth about CFS also seems too outrageous to believe.

People who eat right and exercise daily are not supposed to get sick, much
less THIS sick. Viruses are supposed to go away in a week, not make you
sick the rest of your life.

The only way they can reconcile this is to call us crazy.
