    Right now we have no good evidence based treatments that actually treat ME, we only have treatments to help alleviate symptoms ... however just making those available would help immensely. Governments are likely to push back because there is no effective treatment, all they have is dubious claims from functional neuropsych doctors. They prefer bad or dubious treatments to treatments of limited effect. Sigh.

    Signed.

    Anyone (international) is welcome to sign the petition, right? Maybe make that clearer in the thread title?

    That is a remarkably well worded quote from Finland. Nothing unreasonable, but pulling no punches.
