About The Blog

M.E and me is my tiny little piece of the internet where I'll share with you my experiences of living with M.E. 

M.E, or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (I can never remember this when people ask me - don't sweat it) is a complex neurological condition which affects people in a varying number of ways. It's also widely known as CFS - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - which is much easier to remember. 

NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) describe M.E as "a complex, multi-system, chronic medical condition"  

I first experienced M.E back in January 2020 and have been living with the condition ever since. One thing that the professionals never tell you is how lonely it is to live with M.E. Your whole life is turned upside down and you start to question your identity. If you're experiencing these feelings, you're not alone. I hope, with this blog I can help others navigate those dark times and take back control of their lives. 

I'm by no means an expert or medical professional, just a 20 something woman sharing my experiences of this condition.
