For someone with no prior knowledge: after reading stories of severe ME; such as of Sophia Mirza, the young woman forcibly sectioned in the Netherlands, Whitney Dafoe, and Alison Hunter, it is very clear that this is a devastating disease with something(s) major biologically wrong.

Why do you believe there is such resistance to treating the disease with seriousness, by the Government, the Media--who usually use the picture of a woman sleeping on her desk-- and society in general?

Also are there any journalists/news sites you would recommend who've written thoughtful pieces on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis for the general public?

In the past, I used to think this disease was just chronic persistent fatigue, but upon reading more I feel that as about as misleading as Iraq's weapons of mass destruction- another example where the media in general seemed to blindly parrot institutional power
