    Such a tragedy! :(

    We need to put more effort into convincing patients it is not shameful to be sick. Shame and embarrassment take an unnecessary and uncalled-for toll in an already emotionally devastating illness. Our youth seem particularly sensitive to being shamed for being ill. We need to fight that thinking with everything we've got or we're going to lose more and more patients to emotional trauma.

    Damn those BPS bastards!

    I don't know if this has already been posted, but a beautiful young MIT student suffering from POTS found it too much to bear. Full article here.

    I put this in member's only thread. Let's please remember to keep the tone respectful and reverent lest her family or friends be hurt even more deeply.
