ME Awareness Week: the dangers of GET

I’ve seriously injured a patient — head of nursing at University of Ottawa — because she insisted on the Graded Exercise Therapy programme. We put her in the physiotherapy hospital, which is a great hospital; we put her through a two-month programme. She was ill when she went in; she’s been bedridden for the fifteen years since. We did that, with her help, of course, but we did it, and I’ll never get into this type of treatment again.
