Oh, no!!! This is every ME sufferer's worst nightmare. I suffer from ME, but I have been a bit more fortunate: my doctors in the USA have taken my illness seriously even when they couldn't offer much in the way of treatment. And I have (finally) laboratory tests showing that some of my immune cells aren't functioning, and some types of viruses that should be dead or dormant in my system are instead flourishing.
If Karina had been offered this type of testing, she, too, would show...

If Karina had been offered this type of testing, she, too, would show abnormalities. But doctors who don't want to take the disease seriously don't offer anything except the old standard tests that won't show anything.
Not only are this young woman's civil rights being violated, this appalling act of medical malpractice is endangering her life.

Unfortunately, complaints from the patient community will be viewed as insignificant, since this type of medical professionals consider us to be nothing more than chronic complainers anyway. These "doctors" need to hear from other doctors; the ones who actually specialize in ME research. And no, that doesn't mean the ones from Kings College in London. They should contact the IACFS/ME and chat with some of the professionals who have been truly researching this disease, not those who have been making money by trivializing it.

Very true Elsie, but hopefully it will add weight to the arguments already being put forward to the Danish Government. And if it make one minister think twice about it. Then it's been a success

They have to find out what laws the doctors are using first before legal action can be taken. We should be receiving an update on her status this coming week.

My daughter is going to be treated against her will. But that s because she is autistic (that's not the treatment issue) and has developed very severe OCD and is now well into the process of becoming anorexic. She has a poor understanding of the consequences of trying to control her environment by not eating or drinking. For this reason, treatment against her will is absolutely justified so we can find out why she's doing this and find ways to make it so she doesn't have to do it anymore.

ME/CFS, on the other hand, is not an issue for involuntary treatment orders such as the one going on here. For this reason, I'm signing.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Daughter Daibhidh. It must be heartbreaking to have to go through. Not to mention soul destroying when the people we turn to in our hour of need are the ones who are making the situation worse. I just hope they begin listening and give the right treatment. And hopefully you can turn to a support group for help. And if you started a partition I'd sign in a heart beat

Thank you KP. It is indeed that. And yes - sadly the system here in Finland is ... largely crap, and expertise is slow to seep in. And it's heartbreaking to have to face one's child who wants to go home but isn't able to cope at home. As it is, I get to see her very rarely: her mum's new hubby is a complete worthless letter, shall we say? He has a history of violent behaviour for no just cause and still he is in the house. I see him as a major factor in the aetiology of my daughter's issues. And thank you.

OUTRAGED on her behalf. Surely one of the Danish Doctors has seen a paper on ME by a fellow Doctor who has had the condition first hand. Incrediblly tragic that this is happening in 2013!! This is not the dark ages! She is not mentally incapable, the GP's seem devoid of any 'understanding' so why have they decided to ACT? Is she harming anyone, bieng cared for at home? I have ME and I work p/t looking after a lady who has had the condition for some 17 years now. To her parents 'FIGHT', 'FIGHT', 'FIGHT'. X

It is outrages. I often jokingly say, I would been better off in the dark ages, but when you read about Karina you realise it isn't a joke. It is deadly serious. At the beginning of my illness I was very fit, and tried to exercise my way back to health, but it made me worse. In the end I was bedridden. Thankfully, my GPs where simply ineffectual, which although not good to begin with. Did mean in the long run, I was left to learn and treat myself. Now I can get out of the house for short...

I was only given help 8 years ago when dr obrien at Southend hospital discovered my plight and approached the primary care trust for funding to send me to the chronic fatigue syndrome unit at old church hospital under professor Finley. I was great full of the opportunity to get my life back and worked hard. I left hospital a year later well enough to live on my own. Another year later I had made a full recovery. I am living proof that even the most severely effected ME sufferers can be treated successfully and make a full recovery. All it takes is doctors to recognise the serious nature of the illness and try and help.

This must be a human rights violation - why isn't it being taken to the european courts? They would have to consider medical evidence from around the world showing that there are physical problems behind this illness. They could kill her, there is certainly no evidence her condition has improved.

Sadly, that path takes money. Most people haven't even enough to go to their own courts, especially when governments are stripping back the legal aid funding.

She and her family are being assisted, BUT, due to the fact the Doctors/Facility/Government people involve refuse to answer any questions, provide and paperwork, they might do harm to her case. They are watching things very closely and are proceeding with various legal options to try to get access to the very basic information so that they may find out WHY she was forcibly taken and under which laws she is being held without her consent.
