ME/CFS is an illness that, because of a lack of clear understanding, is still sometimes greeted with scepticism by some medical professionals and those caring for sufferers. But the WHO has classified it as a neurological disease, and the Ministry of Health recognises it as a bona fide condition here in New Zealand. What do we know about ME/CFS? How does it affect the lives of people living with it? And how should we respond to people who have it? Heather Wilson - member of the executive committee of the Associated New Zealand Myalgic Encephalopathy Society (ANZMES), and the Society's Otago and Southland Coordinator, Richie Barnett - broadcaster, sports journalist and former Kiwis rugby league captain - 'the NZ face of ME/CFS' and Professor Warren Tate CNZM - Department of Biochemistry, School of Medical Sciences discuss the attitudes towards this condition. 5 August 2013
