Discussion in 'General ME/CFS News' started by RustyJ, Oct 5, 2011.
This highlights the need for educational materials to better inform schools about pediatric ME/CFS, as well as the ongoing problem of physician ignorance. It's good that the student won in this case, though. Such a shame that he and his family had to go through this, as though they didn't have enough problems.
And how was wearing pajamas supposed to help his medical problems? I can only think this was intended to humiliate the student.
I'll be glad when the group that wrote the ICC complete their clinical guidelines. Then perhaps we can begin the long process of getting them adopted, and eventually perhaps this kind of thing can be avoided.
Wow! can't believe they settled for that much.
I agree the pajama thing was pretty shameful.
There was already an "I'm tired too, give ME money" comment, so I responded with an explanation of what it's really like.
Reactions to these articles (CFS + costs to government services) are so predictable and annoying, but at least they provide an opportunity to educate the people reading them.
