I am moderately affected by ME (and this has affected my life dramatically). I cannot imagine how awful it would be to be removed from my family and treated as though I just imagined that I was ill!
Avaaz Petition: Justice for Karina
As a result of coming down with ME I have lost my job and the ability to do many of the things I love.
I have however had the full support of my family, friends and doctor: who all understand that this is a very physically disabling illness. I am coping relatively well by using a mobility scooter to get about and my family are helping me to keep positive by facilitating activities that I can enjoy.
Karina is in her early twenties and has been removed from the care of her family. She is much more severely ill than I am, and I find it hard to imagine that a civilised country could treat anyone this way.
Please help the ME community take a stand against this outrage!
