    Good to see this massive issue getting some attention. I think we need to be appropriately highlighting this problem more in our campaigning.

    And sadly not the first time either. I don't know what it is in the UK "culture" that has allowed such ignorance in medicine to persist over all the years since the Royal Free. Certain people in certain places have so distorted (for their own ignorant ends no doubt for fame and fortune) - psychiatry - the apparent cure all here - so stop all science, save all your monies, teach this to all new students, teach all new patients to think illness away ........magic (black).

    I can understand why they commit suicide. The pain can be umbearable. I shouted: head must be cut off. That is reduculous but I had to escape the awfull pain.

    Later I started levamisole and that eased the pain for a few hours. These few hours of less pain made there was no longer immediatly need to take my life. Then slowly improvement started and I decided suicide was no longer an option.
