In this new series I will be sharing stories from our beautifully resilient ME community. These chronic illness warriors are not only battling crippling symptoms everyday as they adjust to life with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, but are also finding ways to continue dreaming, creating beauty and supporting each other, despite their debilitating illness. I hope their stories will help you better understand this life-altering condition, raise awareness and eliminate the stigma that still surrounds ME.
Emma's ME Story
I started becoming ill with multiple infections in 2014 and no one knew what was causing it. An ENT told me I’d have to just live with the symptoms. Then in 2015 I had a head injury and it all spiralled downwards from there.
