The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    Know how this person feels.
    Had it since I was 4-5

    I think it's worse never having really experienced life before ME. The past two decades ive been dreaming of what it must be like to not have this.

    The patients that have become ill during middle age, or later, are so very lucky. Even though it might not seem it. They've got 40 years of memories of life. Whilst there's others like me who is still waiting to begin.

    Younger onset is rare although there is one in my Axenfeld Riegers group I think,although they don't know it,maybe best to be untainted by ME/cfs if they want to get a better answer

    I thought the article and the author's attitude was absolutely brilliant.
