A shortened version of the letter was published in the leading Norwegian newspaper aftenposten.no and was also in the printed paper. In the paper, this was an important contribution to the ongoing debate on M.E. We recommend reading the full version. Both the letter and the following quotes make a strong impression.

In addition to the letter, the King received all the senders’ names and how long they’ve been sick, a list of 47 quotes and 5 pages with photos of the young ones. We have chosen to remove personalia here. The original was sent to the royal castle December 7th

One thought on “Letter to the King

  1. So sad. I hope these children made an impression on the King of Norway. It’s disgusting that M.E. sufferers who are so young, and can’t understand why they have been struck down, are treated with such disdain and abuse. 😦
