Social Workers and M.E

This blog was inspired by a tweet I saw yesterday from a ‘social worker’ in a thread about Long Covid. I took a screenshot of their tweet and my response, I hope the person who tweeted these remarks has the decency to delete their post as it is highly stigmatising and prejudicial to those with …

‘I Don’t Care, It Doesn’t Affect Me’

Since the start of my advocacy back in 2014, it has been very clear to me that many people in the wider world, outside of our M.E bubble, don’t care about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis because it doesn’t affect them personally.

Choices

Hi, Foggy is snoring softly next to me in Foggy HQ so I thought I’d make the most of the peace and quiet and write a blog about the choices M.E sufferers make to make the most of the little energy they have. People living with M.E have limited energy; our energy can be represented …
