UK M.E/CFS Treatment Petition

ME/CFS is a condition that is disabling and life changing. It can strike anyone, at anytime. It knows no prejudice, and will ruin a patients quality of life. Health experts have gone on record to say that they regard ME/CFS as debilitating as end stage AIDS and CANCER.

The condition varies from person to person, but in the majoirty of cases, life is over as that person knew it, and for some, its a condition that leaves them bed bound and house bound for months, and even years at a time. Currently, YOU, the UK government seeks to treat this illness with Cognative Therapy, a treatment that most patients reject as uselss.

Please listen to those who are ill, as this condition is growing, and each year, thousands of new cases of the condition are detected in the UK, does it really need to turn into an epidemic before you take a realistic approach to this illness ?

Im asking that you set some money aside in your budget to commence bio-chemical research into this condition and find out what the cause is, and hopefully, find a cure. Living with any chronic illness is bad enough, but when there isnt even treatment let alone a cure, is worse.

On behalf of myself and my fellow 100,000 signatures, please take this condition seriously and help the people who put you in office. We need you now more than ever.

      I have had M.E. for ten years and been housebound for 7 years. Throught the early years of my illness I paid my taxes like everyone else. Despite CBT, GET and numerous psychiatric assessments my condition remains severe and mental health professionals have determined that my symptoms are not psychiatric in origin. I want to work, get off benefits and make a positive contribution to society but until significant progress is made in the field of biomedical research, sufferers like my self will be denied the chance of a normal quality of life.

      Allied NATO Government is hiding millions of NON HIV AIDS cases (like mine) under the "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)" ICD-code.

      UK PROGRESSIVE published one of my letters about NON HIV AIDS.

      This marked it’s 8th publication on 4 continents.

      This topic has been censored from mainstream media since 1992.

      I hope that you will support this humanitarian issue, and spread-the-news too (e.g., write a story, add to your e*Newsletter and/or post on Facebook/Twitter).

      In the fight for humanity,
