I'm a newbie here and I'm trying to pick my jaw up off the floor.
I thought the U.K. was so far ahead of the rest of the world on understanding this wee problem of ours.
I hope these idiots were on some obscure cable channel and not prime time network.
I live in Canada and I get this nonsense I didn't expect it form over the pond.So sorry.
The lady in these training videos is Professor Trudie Chalder, PhD, a former mental health nurse. She is based at King's College London and has worked on research studies with Wessely.
"King's College London Professor Trudie Chalder
Professor of Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy"
"Mental Health Lead Professor Trudie Chalder Professor Chalder is a specialist practitioner in Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapy and International expert in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Professor Chalder is current Director of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Research and Treatment Service at SLAM NHS Trust."
The 3rd video stars Simon Wessely's wife as the GP helping ME patients.
She is also a psychiatrist and I believe an Adviser to the UK Department of Health.
How's that for a cozy set up?
There was a fascinating psychological study once where a perfect mentally and physically health person was sent into a British (I think, either way it works cross continents) mental hospital and was asked to observe the behaviour of the staff and how he was treated and to behave exactly as he should: polite and obedient. The notes and reports by the staff were then examined when the test concluded. They interpreted his note making as odd, he was insular and not sociable among other 'odd' habits. Because they had the preconceived idea he was mentally ill, the saw everything he did as inappropriate. The people who did the study said they would do this again and at the end of each month asked the hospital how many moles there were. They would come up with various figures of moles but the study never sent another person.

I do nearly have a mental break down every time I make these infuriating
videos - but unless I do, no one will know the problems we face.
Somehow I've had 200,000 video views in total, which is quite hillarious
for someone who lives on a bed/sofa and never goes out or sees a human.
I think I'm very lucky to have the internet, and of course Cort's website
where I can converse with you all.
This one was especially difficult to make as you have write down every horrible
word with expert precision.
Lastly note this one has been blocked by youtube in 'some countries'
(it says on my account). Err why? Talk about lack of free speech - it's simply
a copy and paste of a paper in the Nursing Journal and youtube effectively block
it!!!!! <<See attachment>>
