What a Crock

From this article at NPR News:

"Arthur Barsky, a psychiatrist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and a professor at Harvard Medical School, says (chronic fatigue) patients need to change how they experience symptoms — typically pain, insomnia and anxiety. When patients adopt a more positive attitude, Barsky points out, it often translates into greater confidence and more energy."

This is really insulting. Perhaps we should also stop dumping so much money into Cancer research, and instead tell patients to adopt a "more positive attitude".
