    @Tom Kindlon Did I understand this correctly, that this patient got medication prescribed especially in order to be able to endure GET?

    That is all the information I have. Seems a reasonable interpretation of what is written.

    I have managed my illness for 30 years without becoming bed bound until I was refered To the local 'CFS clinic' I have left the house once this year other than for hospital and that was in a wheelchair. I can no longer weight bare and my current physio's don't think I will ever walk again.. Thanks to the 'CFS clinic' I never agreed to GET but the 'CFS' Physio insisted she knew my body better than I did....

    Seriously. "I see you have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Why hasn't it gone away on its own or been cured by CBT yet?!?" :bang-head:

    Therapist? Bullying aerosol more like.

    And hey ho, another saving for the state. No need to pay any state benefits, nor provide further 'treatment, given the patient was so terribly unwilling to help themselves. Self fulfilling patient-abuse cycle.

    I wonder if any of these supposed therapists realise they are actually part of such institutional abuse? If they did, then surely some of them would care ... surely?
