ME: The danger Dr. Myhill is in
"The greatness of man
consists in saying what is true,
and in acting
according to Nature."
"If we believe
we shall commit atrocities."
Dr. Sarah Myhill, whose website is here
has currently on her website this:
I, Dr Myhill, am about to be struck off
the medical register - please help!
I responded as follows - and see also, in case you're interested
and here in case you protest
that she is about to be struck off the
Dr Myhill is an excellent medical doctor, who has a fine rational
scientific hypothesis about the cause of ME/CFS, and who has an
excellent site that is very helpful for any patient with ME/CFS
and for anyone seriously interested in this serious, debilitating
I have learned much from her, all to my own benefit, and am
medically diagnosed by medical specialists with ME/CFS since
1.1.1979, after EBV, and receive special (experimental) medical

In my view, Dr Myhill deserves admiration, support, protection
and funding for her research, because she is and does like a good
medical doctor should - unlike a part of England's psychiatrists
centred around KCL, whose theories about ME/CFS are both

under the ICD-10 G93.3 as an organic brain disease and are
specifically excluded from a psychiatric listing under F48
Dr. Myhill has the courage, wit and medical dedication to treat
patients with ME according to the rulings of the World Health
Organisation. She does like a good medical doctor should do.
She needs your protection, not persecution.

It's also on a very strange ground that she is persecuted: one
And it shows that British medical science is not in good shape,
alas. It wouldn't amaze me if this is KCL(*)-manufactured
or Wessely-inspired, but such things tend to be
not easily established.
One can hope that those who are to decide this issue are rational and
reasonable in majority, as they should be, if good medical doctors.

university where Wessely teaches.
