We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    Awful story about how a women and her husband were treated after they raised questions about a medical procedure. Worth reading for any woman who is undergoing Fibroid surgery as it has information on that.

    @Orla - hard to "like" this story, but thanks for posting --- it's horrific and illuminating. I think I have lost all respect for the medical establishment. This happened awhile ago, but this is just further confirmation. They truly don't seem to have our best interests at heart but instead are ruled by ego and money.

    Yes it is very worrying how they behaved, the sort of closing ranks against a perceived threat.

    I was watching a documentary "What the health" and in it the director was going to do a bit of filming on a hospital campus (the plan was to interview a surgeon). The film is basically plugging a plant-based diet which can help with a lot of common conditions in the US such as heart-disease and obesity, and sometimes patients can avoid surgeries by following the diet. When the director arrived at the hospital he was told he could no longer do the interview, as the hospital made money off the procedures and they couldn't allow anything that negatively affected the hospital income.

    It was a bit shocking to see them admit to this so readily.
