Hi Everyone
It's not letting me send any emails at the moment. I just wanted to send you all another big thank you. We're doing so well, already, and it's only the second day.

I've added a paragraph in the description, making it clearer that there is also a letter writing campaign. The details are in the link, on the e petition. So, for those of you who would like to, please keep sending polite and professional letters.

And please remember to, keep telling people about the campaign,...

So sad but thank you for that update, selling a house to pay for mistreatment that is killing her, no words for the extent of this disgrace...

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.

This all sounds very odd. Why was she removed from her home? Why no visitors? And, why can't she leave if she wants to

In Denmark, M.E. is classed as a psychosomatic illness. They removed her from her home. It's not the first time this has happened :-(

In the U.K., Sophia Mirza was sectioned, places in a mental institution and not given the proper medical care that she needed. Although she did get out, she died later :-(

our family's story shows they often get it terribly wrong and I am hoping by sharing it we can advocate for better treatment of Karina and every ME/CFS patient worldwide. www.bringingryanhome.com

When will this barbaric treatment stop!! I've been a sufferer fir 30 years and let me tell you people DO NOT want to be this ill. Their is no secondary gain what so ever. Please lok at the 5,000 biomedical research articles showing MAJOR problems in the brain and in autoimmunity.

The World Health Organization has recognized ME as a distinct debilitating neurological disease for decades. I know a test for it has not yet been developed but remember that MS was treated as "hysterical paralysis" before tests were developed for it.

My Aunt suffered through that misdiagnoses for her MS. She woke up blind one morning and her doctors diagnosed her with "hysterical blindness" and told her husband to put things in her path so that she would fall when walking around their home. They told him she would get tired of falling and decide to see again.

She was finally properly diagnosed 15 years later, after her husband had left her for "refusing to see". She died 2 years later from complications to the disease.

I myself suffer from either ME or a similar illness and have for the last 2 years. I have yet to get a diagnoses and have had doctors laugh at me and belittle me instead of helping. That so called professionals can act in this matter is appalling.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Aunt. It is so shocking that these misdiagnose still go on, simply because Doctors are to arrogant to admit their own limitation. And since becoming ill myself and seeing it first hand and hearing stories about it. Not only from m.e but a whole spectrum of illnesses. I've been shocked into the realisation that the people we unthinkingly put all our trust in do not always deserve our trust. And as you point out it isn't just an m.e problem it is much more wide spread than that

It is unbelievable that the Danish medical professionals and government agencies have so little regard for the well-being of its citizens. Katrina Hansen is suffering from a physical disease, not a mental illness; and keeping her locked in a mental ward is incredibly cruel and dangerous to her life and well-being. Let's hope Katrina does not suffer a fate similar to that of Sofia Mirza in the U.K. The world is watching what is happening in Denmark now. Patricia Carter, Orlando, FL USA

I know it is shocking, what's going on. And to think the threat of being forced from her home was hanging over Karina for even longer. they are treating her like a criminal, as if she is guilty of something. And for it to happen in a country like Denmark just makes it all the more frightening, because if it can happen there it can happen anywhere

It would be different if karina's parents were intentionally mistreating their daughter, eg neglect. How can the Danish government and medical "professionals" justify their actions? They're digging a massive hole for themselves. Let's bury them and 'set Karina free' to be with her loving family. What better medicine for her than that?

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.
