Tardo-Patriarchy produces Chronic fatigue syndrome

If profesionals of health systems don't begin to reflect urgently about actual Tardo-Patriarchy percoling all of us at a global level, that would mean that, not only it is a case of auto-censorship, but also that they (their mind, their cultural constructs) are prisoners of the (residual) Patriarchy that still inhabit inside them, doctors and health-services people that it is supposed they are going to protect all of us, and no merely to follow The Archetypical-Patriarchy-Law: The silence, itself the most subtil, the easiest and powerful, and coward, Patriarchy weapon pon pon pon pon pon pon poing poing poing poing baaaaaah!

Chronic fatigue syndrome

Defeatism among clinicians is undermining evidence that it can be treated

The first 150 words of the full text of this article appear below.

The recent acquittal of Kay Gilderdale, who had been charged with the attempted murder of her 31 year old daughter Lynn, has led to blanket press coverage this week. She was given a one year suspended sentence for the lesser charge of aiding and abetting suicide, to which she had earlier entered a guilty plea. The debate in the media has focused on the rights and wrongs of assisted suicide, the wisdom of bringing a prosecution for attempted murder, and whether the law needs to be changed.

Yet perhaps the most striking aspect of the case from the clinician’s point of view is the largely uncontested media portrayal of a condition referred to as chronic fatigue syndrome or myalgic encephalomyelitis (now commonly if unsatisfactorily called CFS/ME) as a progressive, paralysing, and commonly fatal illness.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is merely the symptom, as so many others that
almost everyday health experts are adding to the list: the list of marks,
very clear marks that such a violent social system have produced along
centuries and, more and more, in actual caotic global situation. But I am
not from pessimism, only critical. We have solutions, as more and more
people show in their everyday life; we have solutions, not difficult
solutions, to pass from treatment to prevention.

Thanks for your work

El syndrome de fatiga cronica es meramente un sintoma, como muchos otros, que cada casi cada día los/as expertas en salud van añadiendo a la lista: la lista de marcas, marcas muy claras, que un sistema social tan violento ha producido durante siglos y, más y más en la actual situación caótica global. Pero no hablo desde el pesimismo, sino desde la crítica. Tenemos soluciones, hay soluciones, mostradas en el día a día de cada vez más personas. Existen soluciones, nada difíciles, de pasar del tratamiento de sintomas a la prevención, con tal de que acudamos a las raices: al patriarcado…

Y hablando del patriarcado, Casilda y amigas, ¿teneis datos de la penetración del patriarcado, como objeto de atención, y de aprendizaje, en centros educativos y universidades?

Puede que el generoso de google nos pueda arrojar luz al respecto: bastaría introducir “patriarcado” y el nombre de las distintas universidades. Lo mismo lo hago ahorita y lo cuelgo en el “simbioblog”…
Salú! y mucha Gaya!
