En opnieuw een horror-story over de onmenselijke behandeling van ME-de-patiŽnten...
Chronic fatigue victim Theda Myint locked up at Fremantle Hospital after euthanasia attempt.
April 20, 2011
A Perth woman battling chronic fatigue syndrome
was committed to the locked ward of Fremantle Hospital
after an attempt to euthanise herself
in a desperate bid to address her crippling condition.
Theda Myint, 34, has grappled with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME)
Ė better known as chronic fatigue syndrome Ė for 11 years.
The condition has left her bedridden with crippling migraines, severe body pain
and an extremely low tolerance to light and noise.
While on the medical ward,
a psychiatrist reviewed her case in light of her suicide attempt
and made the decision to move her onto a locked ward,
rescinding her rights and placing doctors in full control of her wellbeing.
