Case study: donations in action
“I’m a single mum to Harry, 18, and Theo, 11. During my second pregnancy I was told I had M.E. I’ve since been in constant pain, taking 37 painkillers a day, including morphine when pain is at its worst.
“Before M.E. I was a competitive, active person. I was a hands-on mum but now my children care for me.
“Sometimes I have total paralysis where I can’t move at all. I can’t talk or open my eyes; I have to be fed, bathed and even turned in bed.
“Harry has found it particularly hard, as he knew ‘normal, active, happy’ mum for his first seven years, whereas Theo has only known ‘in pain, in tears, in hospital’ mum.
“There’s very little understanding of M.E. and much ignorance in the medical profession. The lack of support from all health services and the physical impact of M.E. leave me feeling very alone and like a prisoner in my own body.
“M.E. has devastated my whole family. We all need somewhere to turn to help us cope with this awful illness.”
