INTERNATIONAL ME AWARENESS MONTH

International ME Awareness Month 2008
May is International M.E. Awareness Month and there are events throughout the UK aimed at raising awareness of the neurological illness, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and to raise funds for biomedical research into ME. ME or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a medical condition that my youngest son suffers from. He feels exhausted all the time (mentally as well as physically) and if he is stressed, his symptoms get worse. He was diagnosed in October last year (at the beginning of year 11) and instead of going to school full-time, he has been getting lessons at home from tutors, and going into school occasionally. Please help support ME Awareness Month by mentioning the campaign on your blog or website. Thank you.
