Over 10 years ago I got glandular fever and was left with post viral fatigue. About a year later I became very unwell and was left with CFS/ME. I was at university at the time studying Chemistry and was no longer able to attend. I was unable to do normal daily activities due to the crippling fatigue. I also developed visual disturbances, tinnitus, concentration and memory problems.
Over the course of a year I went from only being able to get out of bed, to being able to walk for 5mins a day and to being able to return to university. This was still a struggle for me. I did however complete my degree. From then I have continued to improve and have recovered much.
I have had so much support from friends and family over the years. I am so grateful for their help.
Many people with CFS/ME have not been able to make this recovery and can be left unable to care for themselves. Also they may not have had the support that I have. Their lives can be greatly affected and can be a very difficult time for them.
Action for ME are a charity whose vision is a world without ME.
