    Her story is terribly sad.

    The video has some unbelievable footage in it. If anyone has any doubt about the whether sexism plays a part in how the illness is perceived, listen to the words of the male consultant, Dr Peter Hudgson.

    With regard to the Dr and journalist interviewed:

    The film was for me, a horrible insight into the minds of people who are gleefully willing to torture vulnerable people and who feel justified and even moral when doing so.

    While talking about the 'type' of person who succumbs to ME these people reveal a lot about their own psychology (pathology comes to mind) and say nothing of relevance with regards to ME.
