It’s that time of year again folks. M.E Awareness week is upon us. As regular readers know our lovely daughter, Jess, suffers with severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/M.E. Last year Jess wrote an article here on our blog but this year she has a blog of her own that she has just started writing so there’s a post over there. If you have the time or the inclination to head over there to read it and leave a comment I’m sure Jess would be really chuffed and I for one will be delighted. It’s a very frank article from Jess’ perspective and tissues may be in order.
ME/CFS is a little understood but potentially devastating illness. Symptoms can include: prolonged
unremitting exhaustion, muscle pain, joint pain, severe headaches, cognitive problems and
many more. Some people with ME may be able to manage school or work with
difficulty while others can be left bedridden for years.
AYME is a lifeline to
children and young people with this devastating illness, providing vital support, information and services.
Please consider going here so you can repost this information and spread the word, or
to AYME’s website to read and learn a little more for the future.
I’ll be back soon with the usual sewing news 🙂 Catch you soon x
