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.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to put together a list of writers who suffer from or have suffered CFS/ME. Even one book written is enough. This list is not of authors who have written about CFS/ME, but any book written by a sufferer. I will start with a few-

    Laura Hillenbrand
    Jamie Sams
    Toni Bernhard

    Gregg Charles Fisher (both him and his wife got ME) "Chronic fatigue syndrome A comprehensive guide to symptoms, treatments and solving the practical problems of CFS" This book is a very good ME book. It has an updated version. He shares about stuff him and his wife tried among other things.

    Lynn Michell "Shattered Life with ME" A decent ME book too.

    Two more names for the list:

    * Elisabeth Tova Bailey (pen name)

    She's the author of "The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating."

    * Floyd Skloot

    He has a chronic illness but I'm not completely sure what his current diagnosis is. He may have a different diagnosis now.

    He is an amazing author and writes everything from poetry to novels. One book that many patients with ME/CFS will like is called "Patient 002." It's loosely based on the Ampligen trials.

    Not sure how relevant this is but I've written several books as an academic psychologist - a requirement of academia in the UK!

    Only people who have suffered ME/CFS- books on any topic, but just written by people who have suffered.
