  2. It looks like, that Denmark have become an experimental free-zone, please help us to release Karina Hansen out of the hands of Per Fink and hes projekt supportet by the state of Denmark, medical-industries and security-compagnies. The silence will hurt meny other people in Denmark, mainly from the working-class..so sad to say

  3. As an ME/CFS patient, this entire situation is just terrifying, and it's a huge black mark for Denmark that it's ongoing. I imagine people trying to cover up the harm the did by allowing Karina to die in her imprisonment, and literally burying the problem. Please don't let this happen. I can't imagine what sort of terror ME patients who live in Denmark must be feeling - especially now, when the Rituximab trials in Norway are finally giving us hope for an effective treatment. The entire world is watching.

  10. As well as the WHO classification, there are thousands of clinical,studies from around the world showing that ME is a physical, biomedical illness and is NOT a psychiatric disorder. Please release Karina into the care of her parents so that an expert clinician who is well informed about the biomedical nature of ME can examine her and assist in her care.

  12. First comments were listed as reply to Maureen Goggins. I want to make sure my individual signature counts. Stop this violation of Karina Hansen's basic human rights. Denmark stop holding a physically sick young woman against her will, in a psychiatric facility. People around the world are watching in disbelief, thinking the wrong person is in captivity. Who is the real person or persons with false illness beliefs in Denmark?

  28. Signing in as a "Healthy Ally" of ME/CFS... still very new to the group, but very, very much committed to helping in any way I can. When someone with ME/CFS is willing to put their life on the line and undergo a potential cure, there can be no doubt that it is real, and still very much mis-understood. Do what's best for Karina, and let her go back to her family.

  64. Nancy Blake, England, UK. The US Institute of Medicine report states that ME/CFS is a disease in which exertion of any kind may adversely affect many organ systems in the body. Karina has evidently been severely harmed by forced exertion by Per Fink. Now unable to speak or respond in any way, early in her time there she is reported to have said to those treating her 'you are killing me'. This was reported as indicating progress because it was a complete sentence, while her silence between these rare and difficult utterances was interpreted as 'consent to treatment'

  86. Mary Barker, USA - I watched the entire series of Borgen, the political drama which portrayed Denmark as a compassionate, progressive country - but the treatment of Karina Hanson is beyond barbaric. Please show yourself as the enlightened country you portray yourself as, and release Ms. Hanson - ME/CFS is not a psychiatric illness, no more than AIDS or cancer, and serious and perhaps irrevocable harm is being done to Ms. Hanson by her current "treatment".

    ReplyDelete
  87. A betrayal of genuine medicine allowing 'witchcraft' Doctors to kidnap and take over this young lady and hold her prisoner against hers and her families wishes. Help her get home and get to her Doctors who understand her physical disease and can support her with dignity and compassion, as proper medicine dictates: 'First do no harm'. How barbaric a contrast this situation is. Help Her!

    Please release Karina now and let her be cared for by her parents and ME medical experts, in the hope that she can know peace again and then perhaps, recovery.

    ReplyDelete
  89. A human rights watch group should be allowed to see Karina and independently access the situation. I am sure they will find numerous, serious violations. And she should be allowed a second opinion from an ME expert. As long as the people involved in this case go unpunished, then no ME patient in Denmark is safe.

  113. Free Karina Hansen, return her to the loving arms of her family. Scientists at top Universities around the world have found ME to be a terrible physical illness impacting multiple body systems, with problems in muscle cells, immune system, hearts, cerebrospinal fluid, the list goes on. how can a psychiatrist even pretend to address these very real very physical symptoms. Locking away a patient with such terrible physical symptoms in a psychiatric ward is reminiscent of the worst of repressive regimes. Shocking.

    Stress is one of the worst triggers of M.E/CFS and a prison is not the place to be when suffering this terrible condition. It is neurological, endocrinological and Definitely Not a mental condition. This is the worst possible treatment you can inflict on an innocent and very sick young person.
