Autism has come a long way. It used to be treated with systemic discrimination but slow progress has made it less maligned. Long way to go but the progress is clear. ME hasn't started on that path yet, we are still at full discrimination. Absolutely correct that this would be massively positive and improve the well-being of millions. But human nature is... not always pretty may be the best way to put it. It can be wonderful but we are faced with the worst of it, at least for now. I'm positive things will change but there's no telling how long it will take to even get started. We first have to dismantle an entire fantasy-based ideology that has maligned us and on which many careers depend. People like Sharpe and Wessely, they will never give up attacking us. Their very reputation and identity depend on our continued death and suffering. They didn't plan for it, it's just that they are incompetent amoral jerks who can't face accountability and medicine is still unable to listen to patients when it contradicts long-held beliefs.
