Action for M.E.’s 2018 ME-CFS awareness month campaign, This is M.E., focuses on the unique impact of ME-CFS. It aims to show that ME-CFS is different for everyone – and that everyone with ME-CFS matters, whatever your experience.
A lack of understanding about ME-CFS means children, families and adults affected by the condition can experience disbelief, and even discrimination, from friends, family, health and social care professionals, teachers, employers and colleagues.
Sonya Chowdhury, Chief Executive, Action for M.E, says: “Raising awareness and understanding of the unique impact of M.E. is vital in combating the ignorance, injustice and neglect experienced by people whose lives have been stolen by this horrible illness. M.E. is different for everyone – and everyone with M.E. matters, whatever their experience.”
