    A 10-year-old girl from Plymouth who suffers from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) has reached thousands of people across the world through a video posted onto Facebook, where she tries to tackle stigma against the condition.

    Shannon Tiday says she is angry about a new and controversial treatment, which suggests M.E. can be treated as a psychological illness.

    She's had messages of support from sufferers in Europe, Canada and even Australia

    Shannon has been left practically housebound after developing M.E. - a disease with symptoms of chronic fatigue - meaning her childhood is very different from her peers.

    This is great- its all over our local news in the South West England- even my mum saw it and she never normally notices anything about ME/CFS in the media

    Can we do something here on PR to give her our support?

    Let her know we exist, get the word out, rally round... I dunno... something to increase the volume?
