So let's demand to also include people who had thought they have recovered but did relapse. Sorry for being cynical - but that's what I was trying to point to: the spectrum of people who have recovered or thought they have recovered and the diversity of reasons (including religious/spiritual ones) to which they ascribe their full, partly or temporary recovery. I personally know someone who recovered two years after illness onset and see themselves as just lucky – later their child got ill and is now severely affected. Its parent is still well. It’s impossible to find persons who represent the whole spectrum of people who have recovered (or think they have recovered) from ME/CFS, and as you and others have pointed out, the assumption they qualified for advisory or advocacy only because they recovered doesn’t make sense.
