  • What? Is there some crazy theory going around that it doesn't exist? I'm confused.

  • Yes, it does. Are there cases of misdiagnosed kids? Yes, but does that mean it doesn't exist?

    That's like saying Cancer doesn't exist because some lady on Oprah had a masectomy only to find out there wasn't any cancer in the first place...
