I want YOU!

May is the month of international M.E awareness. If you've visited my blog before (and if you haven't Hello and welcome!) you will know that M.E (Myalgic Encephalomyelitisis an incurable illness that swept my life away from under my feet. It has left me rarely able to leave my bed, let alone the house. It has left me crippled, and forces me to fight some horrible symptoms every single day, and through M.E I have lost so much of me.

During this month, I will be featuring several posts on my blog, to try and help the general public understand what it is, and how devastating it can be. I'm not doing this for sympathy or for attention, I'm doing it because I think it is wrong that in 2014, a genuine neurological, debilitating auto immune disease is often still accused of being a fake illness, that is all in the head or that the people who suffer from it are lazy and just get a bit tired.

I want you guys to help me in every way you can this month. My readers are always so supportive and kind, and I know some of you will help myself and all of the sufferers worldwide out by helping spread awareness.

I'm looking for non medical/health bloggers who would like me to guest post on their blogs. I always try and keep it light hearted whilst sticking to the truth so don't worry, I won't scare any of your readers away with negativity or gore! (And you'd have a say in the type of post it would be too) Email me or comment below if you'll have me appear on your corner of the blogesphere!

I want you, this month, on any of my M.E awareness posts to ask me questions! Anything at all you want clearing up, or anything you are curious about. Ask by commenting on my blog posts - you can even comment anonymously so I won't even know it's you, or you can ask me directly on my twitter or gmail, and don't worry if you think your question/s seem silly, that's the whole reason I am doing this, because people are bound to be curious and have questions. I might even do a Q&A post if I get asked a lot of questions.

I want you to retweet, and share on facebook or other social media my posts. Let's get people thinking and talking, and getting the word out there. M.E has changed my life in every way possible, and the general perception is that it is not serious is not only insulting to every single person who lives with it, but it makes it so difficult to get past the stigma and to be taken seriously. 

So please, if you like reading my blog, or if you think I seem like a nice person, or even if you consider me a blogger friend, get in touch this month and help me try and help future sufferers by spreading awareness and showing the people living with it right now that you care, because you never know, you could get M.E one day too.

Thanks in advance to everyone that is willing to listen this month. There are some people who are suffering in silence, so I'm doing it for them.

  11. Is M.E & CFS the same thing? Or two different conditions?
    Good luck with the awareness and if you get enough Qs a Q&A post would be helpful to many

    1. This is a very controversial question! Without going into it too much, they can be the same thing, a lot of doctors choose to refer to M.E as CFS, but most M.E specific charities say that CFS is more fatigue as the principle symptom, M.E is more specific to neurological symptoms, post external malaise is normally a key point to differentiate the two. It still confuses many of us (myself included) to be honest!
