Time to take this to the next level. We need the same ambition for #LongCovid and other post-viral conditions. History shows that it can be done. Share if you agree!

Professor Sommerfelt: "– Jeg er skamfull på vegne av helsevesenet og folk flest når det gjelder holdninger til ME. Oftest blir ikke ME-pasientene trodd, sett og hørt på en normal måte. Totalt sett så er det en systematisk vold fra samfunnet mot pasientgruppen i ganske stor grad."

Had the chance the discuss the current status of #LongCovid with @holmescnn last evening

As a Jew, I would love to never hear the word ‘Switzerland’ used as a euphemism for ‘neutral’ again considering they created and propped up an entire protected banking system for Nazi money. The number of times a day I hear this as a facilitator… smh
