I just looked up what the following supposively is, seeing its the diagnoses psychs who have holding Karina hostage in hospital have given her this diagnoses http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pervasive_refusal_syndrome . Looks like the psychs are having a field day with this fairly new diagnoses (which we can only hope doesnt become common). umm so what is the difference between this newish psych disorder and CFS diagnoses? anything? I think we all should be concerned about this psych diagnosis. (It commonlly takes up to 13-15 years for something new to be accepted in medical circles.. so maybe we will be seeing more of this) So the psychs have covered the viral infection angle too and that wont rule a person out.. created a new mental health disorder which starts with an viral infection. Very interesting that they are now blaming those things for mental health disorders!! This is soo crazy. Where are the psychs going too stop? Im worried about the IOM stuff and now I see this diagnoses being used to detain people.. very very scary. So in other words any severe ME person may fit all that as often those who are trying to help may be hurting the person who movement, light, sound or other things may be too much at times esp if the person trying to help dont understand at all. Are others here as outraged by this as I am.... I fear for the young severe ME ones or ones who got ME while children, with crazy diagnoses like this around, for a psych to be able to label them with so they become then severe mental health patients needing hospitalization. Even the fact when someone is hospitalized and dont get well... well the psychs have that covered too. So young ME patients unfortunately given this label.. could be made to stay in hospital for a very very long time!!
