In the U.K. nearly everyone also believes its “all in the mind” physiological etc .. strangely enough the only people who do believe it is a real physiological condition are medical experts, doctors, professors etc etc … ironic really, as the most intelligent, educated and trained people who actually know about it, know it is “real”, yet all the half educated (or brainwashed by the tabloid / gutter press) think they have the right even to have an opinion, despite the fact that its based on...

Another bunch of moronic so called professionals with no more knowledge of the subject than a dyslexic chicken. If I were in denmark I'd go and get her out and return and kick the shit out of the hospital staff.
13 years I've put up with this sort of generic ignorance. I'd give em a piece of my mind if I had any left.

I pray for you night and day Karina. What an awful situation you have been placed in. You are dealing with not one but two evils. This truly is abuse at the hands of professionals. Xxx

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.

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 :-(

Chronic Fatigue is not a mental illness.

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

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.

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
