You are a very intelligent person. Hence your continued misinterpretation of pretty much everyone's posts disagreeing with you regarding the place of psychiatry in ME seems deliberate. I find it very offensive. Your stance is that psychiatric care should be an automatic part of ME treatment. It should not. It should be a part of treatment for people that need it. Our priority as ME patients is getting appropriate care for ME - which is clearly not psychiatric. People, ME patients or not, with psychiatric problems should get psychiatric help. This is separate from the issue of getting appropriate care for ME, except to the extent that psychiatric patients may also need to have their ME treated appropriately while under psychiatric care.
