= I agree. When this illness is validated we must not allow the medical and allied professions to ever commit such crimes against sick children or adults again. When the time comes, and hopefully it will be soon, we must take action as a group and ensure that the main perpetrators are called to book. Villagelife, your story shocks me, although it is far from being unusual. Children in the UK have been locked in psych wards, with their parents only allowed restricted access, and refused food. They are told that they will only eat if they prepare the meal themselves. Some of them are too ill to do that, so they are deprived of nourishment. One day, when the time is right, we must ensure that the disgraceful story of medical negligence and abuse in the UK is told. Perhaps that time is now close at hand.
