We are launching a new leaflet and an update to add to the range that we have published since the very beginning of the pandemic and national lockdown.
We provide support, reliable information, a voice when needed, and funding for medical research.
ME Awareness: Failure to accurately diagnose can lead to lifetime of misery and suffering by Debbie Mckno | 17 May 2020
“I’m struggling to come to terms with the fact I was not diagnosed for so long, and am angry that I suffered needlessly for 24 years.”
ME Awareness: “If only I could experience consistent nights of restorative sleep, my life in general might be better,” by Russell Fleming | 16 May 2020
“The most frustrating aspect of sleep is the frequent inability to enter deep sleep. It feels like I only ever dream, and it is exhausting.”
ME Awareness: “ME is a cruel illness and whether we have it mild or severe, we all still suffer,” by Naomi Gilchrist | 15 May 2020
“I’ve tried so many different methods to manage my symptoms. Medication helps to a degree alongside self-management techniques.”
For ME Awareness Week, we are talking about M.E. Symptoms, the extent that they affect people, and how they can best be managed.
“Managing energy is the most difficult but important factor. My advice would be to try to establish a routine to get the best balance between sleep, activity and rest.”
ME Awareness: BBC News: Eastbourne mum with ME gets some life back after years lost in lockdown | 13 May 2020
Emma spent a decade in isolation at home after becoming severely ill with ME in 2004. She has been interviewed by the BBC together with Dr Shepherd.
We invest in biomedical research but need your support so that we can do more to determine the cause(s) of M.E. and help develop effective treatments.
The online course can be taken by anyone with a professional interest in ME/CFS and will hopefully increase awareness and understanding.
This leaflet provides a summary of what biomedical research is telling us about M.E. It considers key symptoms, common triggers, and explains how various aspects of disease pathology could be linked to specific symptoms.
Dr Charles Shepherd contributes to a new article about Covid-19 and possible Post-Viral Fatigue Syndrome.
We’d like to know how you have been coping with the Covid-19 lockdown. Please take part in the survey and Facebook discussion.
