    ME is not a functional disorder

    ME Association petition has been sent to Sir Andrew Dillon at NICE: M.E. is not a functional disorder | 23 October 2017
    The most recent ME Association petition called on NICE to amend its proposed guideline on suspected neurological conditions, and remove all reference to ME/CFS being a functional disorder.

    We wrote to Sir Andrew Dillon last Friday, with a covering letter (below) and enclosed the final petition – supported by 13,593 people – along with 199 pages of comments; such was the strength of feeling shown.

    Dear Sir Andrew,

    …..continued on the MEA website:

    this is institutionalized abuse and violence for ideological and personal gain...

    the British quite happy to deny us medical aid and other help, to let us die in quiet agony out of the Public gaze....

    there is no excuse for their abuse, the PACE Trial fiasco and fraud has removed their excuses and proven their criminality.

    we need to stop pussy footing around this and call them out directly.
