Interesting take on being allowed to question what you read in the Bible or what you’re being taught. I’m a Methodist too, and that’s one of the things I love most about my church - you’re not expected to check your brain at the door. Glad to hear it’s that way for you too.

It’s been my experience that the more I question, the more I learn, and the more I feel closer to God being a part of my daily life.

I'd be interested to know how you've come to be so certain that ME/CFS is a "bullshit" disease, when the medical community has been studying this for decades - and seems to have come to the opposite conclusion.

From my own perspective, I've seen this disease up close for almost a decade as it has destroyed the life of my best friend and wife. It's always easy to read about people with symptoms like ME/CFS that sound so innocuous- fatigue; who hasn't had that? Pain? I get headaches all the time... It's easy to just dismiss them out of hand as being a missed diagnosis of depression or some other disease. It's almost impossible to understand the extent to which bone-crushing fatigue and constant never-ending pain can affect your ability to function when they are with you every day.

And add to that the fact that your disability is hidden - everyone thinks you LOOK fine - and that some people think you are just making all this up! - it's a tough road for suffers of this disease.

So I guess I'd ask that you not be so quick to dismiss the suffering of others - everyone is fighting their own battles that aren't easy to understand from your perspective.
