CFS or depression? Dr. Jason's differentiation

Leonard Jason, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at DePaul University and
a respected ME/CFS researcher, offers perhaps the simplest approach to
the task: He asks patients what plans they would make if their condition
improved. A patient experiencing a depressive disorder, he explained,
would likely have a hard time answering. "But someone with ME/CFS would
probably begin making lists of all the things that they wanted to do,"
he said in a recent interview with BuzzFeed about the issue.
