    I thought this had been posted recently (it's an interesting read), but I can't find it now. Maybe I saw it elsewhere?

    Well worth reading.

    Apologies if it has been posted.
    I searched for the author's name and it didn't show up.
    Nor did it show up on this domain googling the title.

    This is part of why a very hard line "No more damn bloody compromise or meekness" needs taken with the Weasels and medical profession scumbags.
    80 years ago, these same vermin would have been "euthanizing" us, and actually did.
    it's the SAME DAMN THING.
    Same bigotry, same evil, same arrogance, just a lack of the jackboot and anti-Semitism.
    They have abandoned science and compassion and therefor, society should abandon them.

    Awful to see this ignorance still goes on in certain parts. At least as an adult I could think - give me a Shaman any day!

    Apologies if it's not been posted, and I've needlessly and wrongly suggested otherwise!

    It's a very sad article to read, to think that the doctors and consultants can turn such a devastating illness into a weapon with which to abuse caring parents and their already suffering children. It makes me feel disempowered as a citizen and an ME patient when ignorant and pig-headed doctors, and so-called medical experts, have so much status and power, and so little accountability.

    I completely agree. Question is, what the hell do we do?

    We need some way of inciting these parents to act - they're angry and healthy and can do something. We need to get them in touch with each other and organise central protests, preferably somewhere like the Maudsley.
