5 quotes that keep me strong when I feel like giving up #spoonies #chronicblogs #pwme #fibro

Living with a chronic illness is hard. The pain, the fatigue, the insomnia, the cognition problems, the endless list of symptoms are bad enough on their own, but when it’s every single day it is impossible to stay strong constantly. I find it helpful when…

I'm not sure if you guys will have already signed this, but can I ask all UKers to take a few secs to sign this. It is demanding more biomedical research funding for ME and is on the Government petition site. This means if we get 10,000 signatures the Gov will have to respond. If we get 100,000 it will be considered for debate in Parliament.
M.E./CFS is a debilitating autoimmune disease currently affecting 250,000 people in the UK. Many sufferers are unable to work or care for themselves, and 25% of M.E. patients are bedbound. Most M.E. sufferers are on ESA or disability benefits, causing a significant economic burden.
