Having a caring support network helps.
ME/CFS is a hard and often isolating illness that can have a profound effect on sufferers. Meeting others in the 'same boat' is validating, prompts ideas on how you can manage your illness, and is a great way to make new friends.
We have been running local groups for a while now, and have seen what a difference support can make. If you have ME/CFS or know someone who does, don't hesitate to get in touch with one of our groups. Many who have had reservations about coming along are glad they did.
We have online support communities for those too unwell to get out.
