Dear Mr Gervais,
You said: "I believe the greatest privilege in this world is to use your freedom of speech for those who have no voice."
I believe that the greatest privilege in this world is to respect everything that lives, unless they have broken that respect themselves.
Please remember that if you ridicule people with a disease based on what psychiatrists or other doctors say that psychiatrists never ever have any evidence that a disease is psychosomatic or doesn't exist. WHY, because that sort of evidence doesn't exist.
So all you do if you ridicule ME patients is you show total lack off respect for people who are ill.
Or to quote exercise physiologist Professor Keller, who wrote in January 2015:
"Given what we have learned in the past eight years about this illness, it is intellectually embarrassing to suggest that ME is a psychological illness."
So instead of ridiculing us, you should try and help us get proper medication / treatment so that we get our health and independence back so that we can come off benefits and go back to work.
