The above titled article showed up on Psychiatry Advisor today, http://www.psychiatryadvisor.com/pr...1&spJobID=622158062&spReportId=NjIyMTU4MDYyS0 Eleanore Stein does a good job parsing out the differences between psychiatric diseases and normal responses to diseases, she even spells out what PWME are dealing with and provides a roadmap to help. “They are struggling with existential issues and grief. Fear is common because of the uncertainty associated with the course of the illness. Stigma leads to a sense of isolation.” She also discusses the problem with the new DSM-5 diagnosis of Somatic Symptom Disorder, Based on DSM-5 criteria, 15% of patients with cancer or heart disease and 26% of those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or fibromyalgia qualify for a diagnosis of somatic symptoms disorder.7 “This is unacceptably high,” said Stein. I'm pretty sure she, herself, has ME/CFS. At any rate, she's a great advocate.
