    The mother of a child with ME came to my self-help group this week, she could hardly speak about it without bursting into tears, her husband had to take over. Well done to NIcki Strong at the end of the video for describing what's going on with her kids so articulately, must have been incredibly difficult for her. Leaves you speechless.

    Great that they had this event.
    Yes she was marvellous and so eloquent at describing it - she would make a great spokesperson.

    It really makes you wonder how the Lightning Process can be allowed to exist, let alone be effectively promoted by some publicly funded researchers. If a drug was making people severely ill for three and half years it would be banned, wouldn't it?

    ME the greatest medical cover up of yhe 21st century

    ME patients treated in the most inhumane way possible

    ME the suffering, the fear, the neglect, the pain, the harm by the medical community

    ME the largest infectious outbreak hidden and lied about to the masses
