Journal of IiME Volume 5 Issue 1 (May 2011) The name ' Lost Voices' refers both to the fact that people who are severely ill with ME are generally not in a position to make themselves heard, and also to the way that the prejudiced denial of ME - as an 'aberrant belief' rather than a devastating physical illness - has meant that often others are incapable of actually hearing and seeing what is being said and shown. 'Lost Voices' is primarily written by people affected by severe ME and clearly and movingly shows the evidence of the devastating impact this physical disease has on individuals and their carers and families. It illustrates the plight of ME sufferers and can help change a widespread lack of comprehension about the disease based on general misinformation, vague definitions and manufactured statistics, The book also contains facts about ME with contributions from experts such as Dr. John Chia, Professor Leonard Jason and Annette Whittemore. Please buy this book - for yourself or for friends, relatives or for your GP - or suggest it as a gift for others to buy.
