What does M.E. feel like?

M.E. (myalgic encephalomyelitis) is a chronic, disabling illness that can strike at any time.

It can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, and social or ethnic background.

Some call it an invisible illness – one that doesn’t always show on the outside.

But the impact of M.E. can be devastating.

Around 90% of people with M.E. surveyed by Action for M.E. told us that they had stopped or reduced paid work and social contact, while half had reduced or lost capacity to drive and a quarter were no longer able to leave their home independently.

Please join Action for M.E.’s Thunderclap to highlight international M.E. Awareness Day on Tuesday 12 May, and help everyone understand what it’s like to live with this chronic, disabling condition.
