me+ME+DSM-5: Busy on Question 1 about
This is just a brief
note in Nederlog to the effect of my title:
The reason to say so is that there seems to be quite a bit of interest in my writings about psychiatry, and I concede I have both the kind of education (academic degrees in psychology and philosophy) and the kind of experience (34 years of discrimination as a patient with ME/CFS: See the intro to my previous Nederlog: DSM-5: There is at least one sane psychiatrist (it seems) ) to be able to do it well.
But then again, I
really have ME/CFS, and I can only do so much each day, if I can do
anything at all except barely survive, for which reason everyone who
promised himself or herself a nice bit of satire and plain speaking
about psychiatry and psychiatrists have to wait till tomorrow (I hope),
when I shall have written all of my replies to the comments on Question
I (which will probably be done today) and shall have had the time and
energy to correct it a first time.
As to ME/CFS (that I prefer to call ME):
Short descriptions of the above:
1. Ten reasons why ME/CFS is a real disease by a professor of medicine of Harvard.
2. Long essay by a professor emeritus of medical chemistry about maltreatment of ME.
3. Explanation of what's happening around ME by an investigative journalist.
4. Report to Canadian Government on ME, by many medical experts.
5. Advice to psychiatrist by a psychiatrist who understa, but nds ME is an organic disease
6. English mathematical genius on one's responsibilities in the matter of one's beliefs:
7. A space-
and computer-scientist takes a look at psychology.
