    MSN featured this story today (Apr4/18).

    "Chronic fatigue syndrome has similar symptoms to an autoimmune disease but isn't currently considered one."

    That's just one quote from a brief article (it's Reader's Digest) that makes it clear the disease is *a real disease*, refers to the name commonly accepted (ME/CFS), links to HHS (Office of Women's Health page) and also links to a 2017 Stanford study on cytokines, along with a quote from Mark Davis. This seems somewhat of a milestone!

    The other diseases included in their list are: stroke, multiple sclerosis, thyroid disease, celiac disease, sti's, eating disorders, lupus, urological problems, PTSD, anxiety, heart disease, depression, Alzheimer's, and osteoarthritis.
