Journalist Sonia Poulton skrev en artikkel i Mail online om ME 8 mai 2012 «All in the mind? Why critics are wrong to deny the existence of chronic fatigue”, og har mottatt enorm respons fra ME rammede og pårørende. 19 september 2012 skriver hun en bloggpost i Mail Online “ME is no more ‘in the mind’ than Multiple Sclerosis. When is the world going to get that?”.
Dagen etter får hun en telefonsamtale fra Professor Simon Wessley og en lang e-post. Jeg har tidligere skrevet om Sonia og bloggkrigen og at hun tidligere har fått kritiske bemerkninger for sitt journalistiske arbeid i ME-saken.

Sonia Poulton, journalist in the UK is reporting tonight that she got a phone call from Simon Wessely following yesterday blog post about ME:
Woke to find a long e-mail from Professor Simon Wessley…for those who don’t know, he is the big State cheese when it comes to ME…for many people his name represents years of their personal misery.
My recent article on ME, effectively, opposes his stance on the illness and I have been repeatedly warned that I can expect a communication from him…well it came…he says I ‘may be surprised to discover’ that he agrees with most of my article and then he goes on to detail how much of it he actually didn’t like at all.
