The voice of our community

We need to be seen and we need to be heard.

The system doesn't include for us.

The Government has abandoned us.

The medical field doesn't know what to do with us.

We are alone in this fight for survival.

Never got use to the tiredness, chemical sensitivities, lack of support. Even after many years.

Pacing is hard and boring but when I do it properly, it helps me feel more in control of my symptons.

Sometimes just opening my eyes is a struggle.

Sensory overload comes from everywhere, all the time.

I don't realize how sick I have been until I'm well.

This invisible illness needs to be seen.

Just because I carry it well, doesn’t mean it's not heavy.

ME is like a walking coma, you watch life passed by without being able to participate.

People with ME/CFS matter!

Brain fog is overwhelming.

When I am in post exertional malaise, I feel like my body has given up and fear it will never be better than this.

Medical gaslighting, insults and disbelief is incredibly harmful and sets up a whole new set of traumas for people who are already pushed beyond the limits.
