I cannot express in words how much of a living hell that last eight months of my life have been. I can't stress how pointless, unnecessary, and painful this whole thing is and has been.—Ryan Baldwin
Ryan Baldwin is finally back with his parents. He had been removed from their custody after authorities accused his mother of factitious disorder by proxy. They didn't believe he actually had ME/CFS.
Full story at Mountain Xpress.
Despite diagnoses of ME/CFS from Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic, it took the authorities eight months to decide that perhaps he really is sick. Barring another motion, the case will officially be closed in four months, when he turns 18.
Welcome home, Ryan. Here's hoping they let you stay there.
