ME and MCS about to be categorised as a psychiatric illness by Danish GPs. Please sign the patients' petition to object to this dangerous injustice that will only increase the suffering of the very sick patients. From Helle Rasmussen: The Danish Society for General Practitioners is planning to publish a guideline for functional disorders by the end of 2012. In the new guideline, diagnoses like ME, fibromyalgia, whiplash, Multiple Chemical Sensitiv ity, irritable bowel syndrome etc. will be changed into the psychiatric diagnoses of 'functional disorder' and 'Bodily Distress Syndrome'. Please help the Danish ME and MCS patients protest against this development by signing the petition here (petition text will soon be translated into English): http://www.facebook.com/l/lAQF6V-0BAQFBjPBfPDuKswdPkmDv2TIL0BDhq-JGwSoPqQ/www.ipetitions.com/petition/stop-vejledning-i-funktionelle-lidelser/ NOTICE: Please no anonymous signatures. You can send your signature to the owner of the petition, Berit Rask at firstname.lastname@example.org if you don't want it online. C.G.
