    "I'm Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired"

    I got diagnosed with M.E. when I was 12, now I'm 20yrs old and am still battling, or should that be living, with the illness and its repercussions. I don't know quite what to say here, over the years I seem to have mutated from a person who suffered ME into an ME sufferer, and...

    My Daughter Too

    My daughter found out a month ago that she also has CFS. This is of no surprise to me at all. I knew since she was a few months old. I had a feeling. She was pale and slept so much and wanted to sleep. The throat infections and yeast infections. The look of her. So much like me...

    13 Years Experience ;)

    None of the general 'disability' groups seemed appropriate, and my apologies for using the term 'CFS'- search engines always change M.E to 'Me', making it impossible to find ;) I caught Glandular Fever when I was 17 and never recovered. That is the short story; the long one is...

    I have had ME/CFS for about 4 years now.

    I find it very hard to cope sometimes. I am looking for a pen-pal. Someone who will be willing to write letters or emails every once in a while:) I am located in the UK, South Wales.

    M.e. Is Becoming "me"

    M.E. is becoming "me." Over the 9 years that I have suffered with ME/CFS more and more of my life, my identity, my personality and my existence has been chipped away at, lost to, or colonized by this illness. I now struggle to think of a single area in my life which is not in...
