    Coming up later; programme on now (12-2pm).
    Medical: Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis

    The rare autoimmune disease left reporter Richard Watson in a wheelchair.

    eta: the program discussed a number of conditions including EDS, MS, Lupus,
    I found myself yelling at the radio whenever they talked about symptoms (that are also symptoms of ME)....... then of course the question 'what causes it [disease being discussed]'......answer 'we don't know'.

    This came up because Richard Watson is an investigative Journalist for Newsnight and Panorama (might be remembering wrong re the second). Maybe he would be interested in investigating disability due to ME.

    There were lots of references to autoimmune causes, including the GP commenting that EDS is autoimmune. Haven't heard this in the media before now.

    Today on Jeremy Vine HSPs 'highly sensitive people' which is actually a diagnosis.
    Very easy to think 'oh yes that's me'.......
    nothing new though
    "
    Are your own feelings easily bruised and do you worry endlessly about hurting other people’s? Do you well up when watching charity adverts for illness or animal cruelty, dislike scary films or feel bothered by loud or irritating noises (think music coming from somebody’s earphones) in a way that those around you don’t? Then you could be a Highly Sensitive Person, or HSP, a condition that’s common but until now rarely understood.

    However, this is all set to change. Awareness of HSPs has been gathering pace in the US for a while and a new documentary called Sensitive The Movie recently premiered in San Francisco. It explores the issue of HSP and features Dr Elaine Aron, a scientist and author of The Highly Sensitive Person (it’s sold over a million copies). It also includes new research that shows how the region of the brain that deals with empathy and sensory information is different in people who score highly on the sensitivity scale."

    How many more ways are going to be made up to make sure the maximum number of people are caught in the mental health wastebasket? And since women cry more than men, what percentage of the so-called Highly Sensitive People will end up being women? 70%? 80%? 90%

    I cry at sad things - sad books, sad videos and sad films mostly, but also funerals. I also cry when I'm angry or very, very frustrated about something that I can't change. I consider crying to be a normal, healthy release valve for my emotions and feelings, I don't consider it to be an indication that I'm mentally ill and in need of psychotherapy or psychiatric treatment, or in need of anti-depressants, anti-anxiety meds, or anti-psychotics, or any other kind of anti-xxx pills.

    I must admit I wanted to rant about these links earlier today :

    https://healthunlocked.com/thyroiduk/posts/137456995/new-study-hashimotos-heart

    But in the end I decided against it - there is just too much crap to rant about these days.

    I'm rather worried that a certain kind of psychologist thinks they should get to define what a normal level of sensitivity and empathy is.

    program is available starts at around 01.09.00

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b25dbl
    The guy being interviewed is Edward Bullmore, Psychiatrist.
    He's written a book called 'The Inflamed Mind'
    review:
    https://us.macmillan.com/books/9781250318145

    Have just looked him up on Wikipedia where it says he is a 'Neuropsychiatrist' and a Neuroscientist.

    I think we are going to be hearing a lot more along these lines.............

    Is he just sticking "Neuro" in front of it to sound more scientific? What other kinds of psychiatrist are there? Podiatric psychiatrists?

    If we hear more of him, how long do we expect it to be before the name undergoes a reversal?

    I don't think I can have been paying much attention when discussion of Edward Morebull's book first occurred.

    The Inflamed Mind. I'm becoming tired of these oh-so-clever titles. (The last one was "Ills -thought out".) Of course he didn't mean: "just calm down, dearie. You're overreacting and being a bit hysterical."

    How could anyone have got that impression?
