CFS - Catastrophe theory: why we get into and how we get out of CFS

One of my chronic fatigue syndrome patients, Craig Robinson, is a mathematician. As a mathematician and a CFS sufferer, he is in a good position to make sense of the ups and downs of recovery that most CFS sufferers experience. A model that he has found useful in understanding these ups and downs is Catastrophe Theory. This theory studies situations where sudden and often dramatic changes in behaviour or outcome arise from quite small changes in circumstances. Click on the link below to read his article, but please, do not be alarmed by the title! It does not have to end in catastrophe!
