I've had m.e for 20 years. (Since I was 17) I was very poorly, bed ridden then house bound for a few years. I slowly improved over time and started to get my life back a little. Now I have two kids and work 8 hrs a week and manage symptoms ok. It been a long road, but I'm so used to this life style that I don't even think about it much.
Anyway, I have a friend that has just been diagnosed and has come to me for support and advice. Emotional support I can do, but feel I'm totally out of touch with what help is available and what the latest medical opinions are. There wasnt much when I was diagnosed.
Just wondered if anyone can give me any advice that I can pass on to her? She is very interested in alternate therapies. She is a single mum with a young son and is able to work part time but the diagnosis has
really knocked her for six. I really want to help her but feel a bit useless. Thanks xxxx
