I suffer from M.E. and am currently being investigated for fibromyalgia because of the constant, severe pain and other symptoms I am suffering. This is very little knowledge within the community regarding these illnesses and more awareness is needed. They are genuine, debilitating illnesses and there is still a lot of ignorance surrounding whether they actually exist even amongst the medical profession.
my cousin has that n has went on to have a wee girl n is now back at work hen x
I've suffered for years now Issy xx

Support and empathy is what all sufferers need.
Have known at least two people with Chronic Fatigue. One lady couldn't stand for long at all and even had to wear a monitor in case her heart rate went up.
We need to put pressure on the medical profession to take this seriously.
Because it is so debilitating and a lot of people aren't aware of it , that's why it needs to be highlighted so that people can get some help in trying to control it...
Because if people are more aware of this disease, treatment and help can be more easily obtained by those effected.
Because of how it hurt my friend
To be so debilitated every day is unthinkable! Let's work to understand and to find a cure soon.
Because it's very hard suffering alone so if more people know, less will have to suffer alone.
Because I know how debilitating this illness can be, it needs to hightlighted.
to raise awareness of this debilitating illness which affects a friend of mine..
