    This article, which I can't see here on the site, shows the severe and even life threatening nature of the condition. Apologies if the article is already posted - I couldn't see it.

    The woman featured in the article has been ill with ME for years, but the death of her mother has made her even worse and she can no longer speak or sing. She is in the 25% group severity-wise.

    From the article:

    The article is by Mary McCool, and it's definitely one of the better ones.

    It's a very good article in a significant uk newspaper, astonishing feat, considering Amandas comminucation issues. The emotion/grief headline angle probably helped increase its appeal to wider Audience
    I tried to get MEA to PoST on their wall but they haven't, I dont know if because it was fundraising for 25% group or as it's a severe story.
