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...
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
At midnight EST we had only 115 signatures at 6:15pm we have around 540! Please keep passing this around. We CAN and WILL make a difference!
We have spoken to Rebecca Hansen - not related - and she says they will have an update for us this coming week.
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.
So Sad about your daughter, No words for what is happening to so many, all Our Love And Lightxo
Please , Please sign this petition these are crines against Humanity , Anyone of you or your loved ones can be diagnosed with ME/CFS Offering NO sollution to your illness !!!

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...
I also had chronic ME and I left me severely disabled and bed bound for just over 10 years. I was not treated with understanding by British doctors, their ignorance was disgusting. 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...
I also had chronic ME and I left me severely disabled and bed bound for just over 10 years. I was not treated with understanding by British doctors, their ignorance was disgusting. 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.
And the most worrying thing is the UK is on of the most informed countries about m.e
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!
Whoops! Don't know what happened there!
