You will be aware of the story of Gigi, a youngster, who is being held against the wishes of her family, in a hospital in London. Her paediatrician has removed her 'severe ME' diagnosis which was made by a recognised ME specialist and has replaced it with PRS. She is in severe pain, but he has also stopped her analgesia, (he claims her pain isn't real but just distress .......caused by whom I wonder???). He also wants to remove her to a psychiatric unit, which would be an appalling place for a very severe ME patient and is threatening to take her eye mask. He has also stopped the treatment for MCAS which has enabled her to gain weight.

A film has now been made about her plight. Please share it where you can.

At last some better news!

Gigi's paediatrician who was responsible for her cruel treatment has been replaced by a female paediatrician who, I hear, is much more sympathetic and has re-established her analgesia. She is still being held in the hospital, however, so we have a long way to go yet before Gigi's unpleasant and traumatic experience is over.

Time will tell how much physical and psychological harm her abusive hospital experience has inflicted on her.
