Now, some of my frustration. These are two abstracts I presented at AACFS meetings. AACFS is the American Association of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which happens to be a very legitimate government research group. It is basically NIH physicians and academic physicians throughout the country. At the October 1994 meeting, I presented an abstract on NeuroSPECT findings in children with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Two years later, this was in San Francisco, 1996, I presented "Neurospect Assessment of Abnormal Distribution of Bloodflow in CFIDS vs. Autistic Children". I was comparing the two populations.

What is very disturbing is at that meeting, and we are talking very high level researchers, I made the statement that if you were an adult with a mature immune system, a mature brain and this process hit you – be it autoimmune, viral or whatever – bloodflow shut down – you had basically Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, adult ADD, or variations thereof. If you were an adolescent with an essentially mature immune system, not a fully mature brain, you basically presented with attention deficit or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. If you were a 6, 7, 8 year-old child, you presented with mixed, quiet ADD or variations thereof. And if you were 15 – 18 months-old and this process hit you, you presented with Autism/PDD. None of the researchers laughed at me. But I want you guys to consider that that was a year and a half ago.
