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.

    I read somewhere a very clever, but very simple thing folk should say to us:-
    "How aren't you?"
    then we can launch into a lovely response of; "Wonderful, top of the world!".

    but oh, my heart leapt at the suggestion a friend might bring me a cooked meal!

    It won't happen, of course; all of my friends who would do that for me, live far too far away.
