Happening right now, twitter chat with Jen Brea and Michael VanElzakker
Jessica Taylor was just on. Here are some other names to expect. Cool idea.
Does he think that ME is not Malingering but PTSD?
Yes but get to the nitty gritty he thinks PTSD is the physical manifestation of emotional stress if he follows the mainstream view. Does he think the same of ME? Yes or No? PTSD does not require the notion of malingering.
Also what does he think GWI is?
Are you on Twitter? Why don't you ask him? I've heard good things about him so I'd be surprised if this was the case.
This is the twitter bio to Mark Suzman:
Chief Strategy Officer & President Global Policy & Advocacy, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Tweets my own, interested in global health and development
I'm not on twitter I try to steer as far away from social media as I possibly can I'm afraid.
Also my overall point is about dustbin diagnosis on the whole and how using the PTSD label can also bury other illnesses for example.
The BPS crowd would gladly settle for ME "being a type of PTSD", infact they pretty much know the "malingerer" angle is dead in the water.
There's no shortage of "experts" pushing "repressed emotional trauma", as the cause of alsorts of conditions. Infact they are pushing the MUS meme right now for just about everything.
@large donner thanks for elaborating I was wondering what you getting at
Apparently #UnrestPBS is trending!
I am not on social media so I hope those who are can tell me if #UnrestPBS thread has talked about children, school, etc.
Rapper Trip Lee talked about his battle with ME and that his song "Sweet Victory" is about the disease
David Tuller up in 15 minutes
The very fact Jen Brea and David Tuller are interacting together this way sends a strong signal to those who still try to pull the wool.
Can't work out if David has gone offline or if it's just my twitter ineptness
