Thanks to Terri Wilder and Mary Dimmock the great state of New York - the third largest state in the Union - now officially gets it about ME/CFS. From the New York website:

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (my*al*gic + en*ceph*a*lo*my*eli*tis) (ME), historically referred to as chronic fatigue syndrome, is a serious, chronic disease that affects multiple body systems, including the nervous system, the immune system, and the body's production of energy. Many people start feeling the symptoms of ME after contracting a viral or other type of infection or following a change in hormonal status, but experts do not yet know the exact cause. ....

What is known is that ME is not a psychiatric disorder and it is not caused by a lack of exercise, contrary to common belief​
