    oh the irony. her child was taken away because she was accused of poisoning her child. Now the child might get poisoned with psychiatric medication.

    the reason why the child had a breakdown might have been the separation of the mother and the child. The treatment seems to be to make sure that they see each other less.

    The reason why a child with a neurological illness was sectioned under the mental health act is unclear.

    The details in the articles are sparse, but in this case there's no indication that it was related to CFS. The daughter was separated from the mother after a complaint was made about the mother, but it doesn't say that the daughter was immediately sectioned. It says that "her daughter suffered a breakdown after the pair had been separated and was detained in hospital under the Mental Health Act." The suggestion is that her CFS-related health had improved by the time of the separation.

    So latest update is...mother is still fighting to get daughter back. It is simply appalling and from what I gather from mother the restrictions placed on daughter are extreme - to the point I have difficulty understanding what on earth the point of them is. Very distressing indeed.

    Anyway here is article / 5 min video explaining situation as it is currently:

    If you would like to help the petition to get the daughter back please see petition below:

    Please do sign if you agree. It is destroying this poor young girls life.


    Best wishes,
