Bit of a mouthful thread title, but I have seen many references in the last few years that explicitly blame the biopsychosocial model of ME/CFS as a historical mistake, a failure that should not be repeated with Long Covid. Sadly, though, it is being repeated. But one of the main tropes of BPS ideologues and their supporters is that only a small vocal minority are in opposition to it, and do not represent the majority of patients. As best as I can tell, this sentiment is nearly universal: the biopsychosocial model of ME/CFS has been a massive failure and complete change is needed. Far from it being a small vocal minority who object to the psychosomatic model of ME/PVFS/LC, it is almost universal within both the LC and ME communities. I have not to this day seen a single objection to it from long haulers. Aside from, maybe, Paul Garner, whose status is... conflicting. Mentions of the historical failure of how medicine handled ME/CFS have been featured in newspapers, in legislatures and panels and roundtables discussing Long Covid. So this is a thread that aims to keep track of such quotes in public forums, whether news media articles or from authority figures. The format I will follow is: A reference to where, when and who said it, either a URL to the article being quoted, or an embedded tweet featuring it.
