My name is Louise Sargent and I launched M.E. Support in 2001, having been living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis for nine years, in a bid to raise awareness and help fellow sufferers. This is a UK-based website providing worldwide information to hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.

I manage M.E. Support daily with the help of a small but invaluable team of Volunteers. I have also been able to expand offline, such as advising the media on M.E. and guiding medical professionals.

I host a social group for people living with M.E. and related conditions in Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex with monthly meetups at the De La Warr Pavilion. Please contact me by email to find out more.

This is a local ME/CFS group for people living in Brighton, Hove and the surrounding areas. We have a regular pub social in central Brighton and welcome all to join and make new friends. This takes place on the second Friday of each month between 3pm and 4pm and you’ll be able to spot us quickly – watch out for the cuddly toys on the table.

 

Crowborough ME Meetup Group

Email Graham: root@meetup.org.uk

If you have an illness like M.E. that makes it difficult for you to participate in the usual social activities, a group of Sussex men and women invite you to join them. They have all experienced M.E. for a number of years and fully understand the frustrations of needing to take life at a more careful pace.

They know how easy it is to lose your self-confidence when it is so tiring to keep going and so have set up up a social group which guarantees a warm and relaxed welcome for all. Partners or carers are also welcome.

Usually we meet at 11.00am on the first Tuesday of each month at Millbrook Garden Centre, and at 12.00pm on the third Wednesday of each month at different places. For more details contact Graham by email.
