“STRAIGHT-JACKETED BY EMPTY AIR:
Psychiatry’s long and shameful involvement in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis”
....is available to download as a FREE eBook.
It is a critical time for people with ME, it is important to work with NICE to get a biomedical healthcare pathway established in the UK. To achieve that, you really need to understand the issues, especially the history.
This book is offered in love, as a contribution to the ME community, to teach, to inform and, as in all my books, to inspire.
Here is how it begins :
"If I was to focus all my hurt, all my tears, all my despair, all the love poured out, over 25 years of gross medical neglect, onto these words:
PSYCHIATRY OUT OF ME, NOW !!
..they would be written a million miles high."
Many, many thanks for all the support and enthusiasm for this book, it spurred me on!
Special thanks to Rachel Higginson, Susanna Agardy, Geoffrey Keith Brown, Sally K Burch, Colleen Steckel, Nancy Blake, Corina Duyn, Clare Norton, Naomi Whittingham and Theresa Brennan, for contributions and help.
