Uit "Mijn relaas" van Bamboe, te lezen onder "Persoonlijke Verhalen", is niet af te leiden dat Bamboe lymepatient is. Dat lijkt me voor dit topic belangrijke informatie.
Dit is onzin! Ik heb helemaal niet gezegd, laat staan "bepaald", dat Bamboe wel of geen lymepatient is.
Om het met de woorden van een andere Lymie te zeggen:
There is an epidemic of Chronic Disease Denialist Syndrome (CDDS).
No, I’m not talking about Chronic Lyme Disease, I am talking about chronic disease in general.
Throughout recent years there has been many denialists of chronic illnesses. When a cause is not clear, there are many “skeptics” out there that default to a psychiatric explanations. Even when the science isn’t yet clear on potential emerging diseases, they are very quick to accept unfounded psychiatric explanations. I am not sure if these people realize or not (I assume they most are just following the herd), but this is not scientific.
Why do these people deny chronic diseases despite established neurological, immunological, and biological abnormalities? Well, they either truly believe these illnesses are mental for some reason, or they like to see people suffer. I am not going to attack people personally, but unfortunately, I think I have seen a lot of the latter.
I’ve been trying to figure out why these people do what they do. They aren’t trying to help people. In fact they are trying to stab them in the back when they aren’t paying close attention.
I honestly don’t understand this personality, but a friend told me these type of people are people with sociopathic tendencies. I didn’t even know what that meant, but when I looked it up, it seemed to fit. I don’t understand why one would have such a mindset, and I don’t think I ever will. And from what I read, it’s not an extremely small amount of the population with socipathic tendencies.
These people deny the existence and suffering of illnesses such as Gulf War Illness, ME/CFS, and Fibromyalgia. I used to think this was group think or some type of herd mentality, but I have noticed recently that some actually enjoy seeing people suffer. For example, I have seen some members on various forums (without a chronic disease) that are pretending to be there to help these people. They are modern day AIDS denialists, and it’s quite ironic that they are the ones trying to call us AIDS denialists. Eh, what?When you see their blog, for an example, it’s clear that they exhibit multiple personalities. They are more gentle with people on the forums and pretend to be their allies, and then in their blogs (http://www.skepp...), they rip these people apart. This is recreation for these people, and these are the people that are truly mental ill
