Hi Tracy, My daughter and I have just wanted Grace on Campbell Live. She is now 8.5yrs old and was also diagnosed with ADEM when she was 3.5yr (the youngest case they had seen). The part of her brain that was effected was the Optic Nerves and was blind for 6 months. Now 100% better. However I know what you are going through. We live in AKL if there is anything we can do - visit bring you a coffee please contact me.

The comment from Richard Bartholemew is sadly typical of a certain type of doctor who is over-eager to diagnose "hysteria". There is a related disease to ADEM called myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and this diagnosis is thrown at them a lot. They suffer a lot of cruelty, even children who are very sick and in a lot of pain. There was a girl here in the UK called Lynn Gilderdale, who suffered from one of the most severe cases. She was bedridden for 16 years until her suicide, aged 31, in 2008. They found clear evidence of endocrine abnormalities during her life, and of spinal cord inflammation after she died. But many doctors treated her as a hysteric and she suffered terribly at their hands. I do hope nobody like this get their hands on poor Grace.

We have recently heard of young Grace and her whanau's ongoing battle with this rare brain condition. As we are a family store owned by myself (Tarn) and my husband Rusty, we sympathise with the Yeats whanau as we ourselves have three young children of similar age to Grace. Nikita 11 years Ashanti 9 years and Noah our youngest at 5 years of age. To think of such a terrifying condition striking down either one of our children is terrifying and yet Graces family are leaving this right now as you read our email. We at Pitstop Masterton would like to help out financially by donating $10 from every economy vehicle service (from $139) $15 for a extensive service (from $189) and $20 per service for our elite, 4x4 and deisel service which costs from $279 If we book in 8 vehicles a day (based on economy service) thats $80 per day x 5 days a week = $400 per week and if we book in for elite, 4x4 or diesel thats $160 per day x 5 days a week = $800 and if we run through all of August, well the maths is easy to work out. To make this a success we would be looking at radio advertising, facebook, newspapers and where and what ever we can generate press to make this a success. We would not put a end date on this promotion and will run it till we get the Yeats whanau the answers they are looking for Stay strong Kia Kaha. Tarn, Rusty and Whanau at Pitstop Masterton Wairarapa

Hi Tracy. Thank you for your clarifying comments and for taking my remarks in the spirit that they were intended: to help get the correct diagnosis so that your daughter gets better. While MRIs need to be interpreted by human beings, if there is unambiguous evidence of an inflamation of the brain, then I would rule out conversion disorder. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family at this challenging time.
