Yes these are people we turn to in our hour of need and all they can do is ridicule and mistreat you. And the most disgusting thing is they have law on their side

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

Chapter 33 of Hillary Johnson's: Osler's Web: Inside the Labyrinth of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) Epidemic is "HIV-NEGATIVE AIDS."
Neenyah Ostrom's book "America's Biggest Cover-up: 50 More Things...CFS & Its Link To AIDS" cites: "Some CFS Patients May Be Non-HIV AIDS Cases."
Will CFS ever make any progress unless we acknowledge this fact?

My heartfelt prayers of healing light & much love to Karina & her family. And may the Doctors & Danish authorities find it in their hearts to honor Karina's humanness & soul.

I really do feel for Karina, as I also had CFS (recovered now) and only know too well the devasting affects ignorance can have upon a soul.

Thinking of you all - and I shall do what I can to spread the awareness & word about Karina.

With all my love,
Kate

It is terrible and has been going on for over a year now, because they began threatening her over a year ago. And severe m.e on its own is like being tortured. So what they are doing is awful

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 left at home suffering in pain and sever disability and they did not care or try and help. At the time the NHS did not train their doctors to understand or treat the illness. 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.

I've been sectioned several times too. I've been becoming more and more sick for the past 2-3 years. I'm in constant pain, constantly fatigued lethargic and hungry - and a few days ago, I noticed my spine was curved!
