An excellently written, but harrowing account of this young woman's life with severe M.E., and of the disbelief, neglect, abuse, cruelty and torture she received from the M.E. specialists supposedly 'caring' for her that led to her symptoms worsening so much that she - left paralysed, incontinent, unable to speak or swallow, finally could take no more.Thank goodness she had loving family.
M.E. has been classified as a neurological illness by the World Health Organisation since 1969, yet in the UK it is treated as a form of malingering. No-one in the medical profession seems to have asked what contaminant was in the vaccine that caused so much damage to a healthy, lively, intelligent 14 year old's body.
"When her body was examined by the pathologist who specialised in M.E., he discovered 'dorsal root ganglionitis' - infected nerve roots - and nodules of Nageotte, which are liitle tombs of dead cells, in her spinal cord. These would have caused her terrible pain and sensory nerve damage. They found similar cells in the body of Sophia Mirza, an M.E. sufferer who died in 2005 at the age of 32,and I believe also in other sufferers."
Yet still the UK psychiatric profession take all the research and treatment funding. The situation is a national scandal.
may Lynn rest in peace after so many years of incredible suffering.
