This was in 1903. Throughout the past 100 years, the patient population has had access to such crooks, and they still exist. The interesting point is how little this is being said, and how little reaction there is towards these people, who have decided to make a living by selling quack cures. I think there is a physician subculture that is exploiting the vulnerability of the fatigued population. It is among some of these practitioners, who are making a financial killing, that we get the most fanciful immunological models or ‘factor X’ type of analysis of a variety of sorts, and the most surprising (but never published) correlations between laboratory and clinical findings.

3% of the patients, a frequency at least five times greater than that recorded in the general population by surveys employing similar psychiatric interview schedules (Schulberg et a1 1985). A discriminant function analysis, comparing chronic fatigue patients who were depressed with those without a psychiatric diagnosis, showed that the depressed patients were older, more likely to complain of severe fatigue in the morning hours, and more likely to report that they had been unable to function in the workplace because of their fatigue (Manu et a1 1989a).

You make that point, Dr Moldofsky, when you say that these people are talking about tiredness. The implication is that patients’ talk about illness is just not valid, whereas physicians’ talk about disease entities is. Patients are giving you their illness experience. What we are doing is to reconstruct that account as a disease. This leaves a certain tension between our different reconstructions: a first-hand yet scientifically suspect patient narrative and a professionally legitimized if experience-distant physician’s tale.
