After the promising radio interview yesterday, with one of the documentary makers and the father of an ME patient (https://www.nporadio1.nl/radio-focus/onderwerpen/445612-onverklaarbaar-oververmoeid) Dutch transcript from radio interview on https://corsius.wordpress.com/ English transcript here: https://corsius.wordpress.com/2018/...iew-by-eveline-van-rijswijk-with-lou-corsius/ Tonight at 21:25 on Dutch national television: Focus documentary: Inexplicably exhausted Starring our very sympathetic members @Grigor and @Lou Corsius Can be watched on https://www.npo.nl/focus/22-02-2018/VPWON_1283735 (probably cannot watch it from abroad... and it is in dutch anyway) Synopsis (translated) Thousands of people in the Netherlands are chronically exhausted, with no clear medical cause. Their disease is called chronic fatigue syndrome or ME. Psychologists claim that they can cure patients, but their treatment is by no means always effective and some patients even say they have become sicker of psychological therapy. Focus shows people who are severely disabled due to chronic exhaustion and who find that they have been ruthlessly treated by psychologists and doctors. Diederik Jekel and Elisabeth van Nimwegen also investigate alternatives to psychological treatment and see if there might be a physical cause for this disease which sometimes even leads to euthanasia and suicide. From the radio Interview: Corsius: Well, we assume that for Céline rehabilitation has contributed to her deterioration. And as far as the PACE Trial is concerned, you can also say that it has caused quite a stir, because it turns out that the researchers have changed their outcome measures halfway through the research. Van Rijswijk: Yes. Can we briefly explain: what was wrong with that research? Corsius: That is really a very long list.
