Why are those pretend-sick people so darned UPPITY? | Chiller
"GET has a dreadful reputation among ME sufferers, as it demands that the sufferer does precisely what they are unequipped to do – exercise. This approach has pushed many people from a workable, but very limited "norm", back into full relapse. ... Which I know puts me in relapse, because I faithfully tried it for the first three years I was housebound with this condition, and spent the entire time yo-yoing in and out of relapses. Yet I kept trying. I am not unusual in this. People with ME will try anything that might help them get better. We are – and I make no apology for this – desperate to get our lives back. All of us."
