    Please e-mail this to any ME contacts that you have who may not check the forums regularly themselves.

    Can anyone put this on twitter?

    If you'd like to e-mail your MP but are having difficulty writing, here is a rough outline to use and modify as required.


    Dear MP,

    I/my partner/child suffer from ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). This illness has had a very serious impact on our lives, and is particularly hard for young sufferers whose lives are greatly restricted and disrupted. ME is the largest cause of long term sickness absence from school.

    Recently there have been some very significant new research discoveries about ME.

    Next week there is a medical conference on ME being held in Westminster, the top researchers from the UK, USA, Belgium, Germany and Norway are meeting there to discuss these findings.

    A meeting in parliament has been arranged on the morning of Thursday 19th May with researchers from this ME conference and MPs. The chair of the APPG for ME, Annette Brooke, has organised a venue, the Grimond Room at Portcullis House at 10.30am.

    I would like to ask you to go to this meeting if at all possible, it is very important that politicians are aware of this latest research and its implications so that further progress can be made. At the current time there is very little help or effective treatment available for ME sufferers, but this new research may be able to change that.

    I do hope you are able to attend.

    yours sincerely

    name
    full address (you have to put this in so they know that you are one of their constituents)
