Parents of sick children living in fear of social services

Something has to be done to stop these doctors feeling that they have the power to ruin a familys life like this because they do not understand or believe in an illness. The article I have linked to tells a very sad story about a family living with a child that has been diagnosed with M.E. It talks about doctors threatening families in this situation with reporting them to the social services.

I have added this to the fibro board as M.E and fibro are closely linked. I missed school as a child, I was bullied due to my illness, was labelled a skiver by teachers. My parents were visited by a truency officer. This all added to the stress of my illness and definitly made things worse.

I am hoping that by passing this article on someone may be able to help out in some way? to help support the children that are dealing with ME/Fibro that we as adults often find is a very difficult cruel thing to live with.
