Are you ready for this week's ME News Headlines and Blog Updates from the ME Community? Get comfy, there are lots of exciting things to catch up on this week.
It's been a busy few days of advocacy as it's M.E. Awareness Week, so there are a lot of ME News and Blog Highlights to share this week. I am constantly amazed at the incredible creativity in this community. This week we feature quite a few poems as well as a beautiful stop motion film. Please share any of the articles linked today - they are all excellent ways to raise awareness and sharing will support and encourage the creators too.
M.E. Awareness Month is well under way now, but among all the advocacy campaigns and fundraisers there is still research and other news to catch up on too. Below you'll find a summary of this week's M.E. News Headlines and this week I've also added links to all the current advocacy events I could find, so you can easily decide which ones you're able to join during the focused M.E. Awareness Week.
It’s May, which means it’s M.E. Awareness Month, so to get things going, I’m sharing this week’s ME News Highlights and Blog updates from the ME Community. Although most of the news this week is focused on the awareness campaigns that will be running this month, there are some other interesting articles to read too.
Are you comfy? Got a drink or snack ready? I know how hard it can with brain fog to read or stay focused on long blocks of text, so I’ll do my best each week to summarise the latest ME News and Blog Posts into short, easy to read paragraphs for you.
Please let me know in the comments below if there is any way I can improve these posts to make them more accessible to you.
After a long break, I am happy to be resuming our twice-monthly guest interviews. This week we are meeting Jorja who has been living with Depression, Anxiety and ME/CFS for many years. This interview is part of an ongoing series where we interview people from around the world who share how chronic illness or disability has changed their lives and how they continue to find reasons to celebrate anyway.
I hope this series will inform and encourage you and maybe help you feel less alone if you're dealing with something similar. If you'd like to be featured too, click here.
