Join us this ME Awareness Week, in sharing REAL stories of REAL people whose lives are on hold, wasted and unlived because of this cruel illness.

M.E. (Myalgic Encephalopathy or Encephalomyelitis) is a severe neurological disease that blights the lives of around 250,000 people and is believed to cost the UK £3.3bn each year.

It is an invisible illness. We may not always look ill, but when our symptoms flare, the effects are obvious. It can feel like a constant flu: the smallest exertion can floor us; our bodies are sore; restful sleep eludes us; light and noise hurt; and brain fog clouds our thinking.

M.E. PUTS LIVE ON HOLD: normal routines like getting dressed, tying shoelaces, washing hair, taking a shower, even brushing teeth can be beyond us.
ME WASTES LIVES: we may not be able to work, or study. Sometimes we cant even keep friendships going.
LIVES UNLIVED: a quarter of us are housebound or confined to bed for many months or years. Family relations may be strained to breaking point.

M.E. remains a hidden disease. There is no known cure and no effective treatment.

ME Association supports people with ME and their families, in part by campaigning on important issues at national level. This ME Awareness Week 2019 - 6th to 12th May ME Association, with the help of countless REAL people with ME, we will be telling their REAL stories of the struggle that is living with M.E. Of everyday life and the sacrifices and challenges that brings.

Our fundraising campaign Go BLUE for ME aims to shine a blue light on this hidden disease. We want to show how ME affects our lives and to help others understand the issues we face. Making the invisible, visible for all to see.

Please show your support for our campaign by donating anything you can afford, and by turning your own corner of the world BLUE for M.E.

Thank you.
