This is a very impressive presentation.

Dr de Meirleir gives a concise overview of ME as defined by Ramsay, outlines the damage that the word "fatigue" has done, emphasises the pressing need to move away from "CFS" and use "ME", and describes  the growing use of the ICC Criteria - showing how the psychiatric lobby is gradually becoming isolated - although there is still a long way to go.
