Good catch! We all owe a big "thank-you" to Leonard Jason, who really has been both a stalwart defender and an excellent researcher. So "thank you" to both Jason and Urbantravels! Chris
Thanks, UT! You're finding all the treasures tonight.
Many thanks urbantravels - it's so good to see articles "raining" in now.
By the way, an asshole pyschiatrist said my Mum had "neurasthenia" this was back aorund late 1960s
no, she had arachnoiditis, severely nasty scarring of the spinal cord caused by injury (got her back broken when a patient fell and grabbed her) and a side effect of an X-Ray flourescent dye that got banned years later (but was then exported to Africa because well, it seems Africans don't count as "real people" when it comes to profit and safety, blech! :headache: )
Because she was a woman, she therefore HAD to have a "mental condition" in the useless twat's eyes, psychiatrists seemingly thinking that only "real men" suffer "real diseases".
Archnoiditis is, fyi, incredibly painful, pinches off nerves, and causes numb areas as well.
I keep seeing mention of "fatiguing illnesses" going back in to the 1930's. However, I think it confuses things.
More often than not people mention the 1980's or later being about the time things changed for them.
Great video, it even used the word "retrovirus".
