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.

    Hey Guys,

    I need your help. I'm writing an online article for The Guardian newspaper in the UK about life as a student in Higher education with an invisible disability.

    I am in my first year at university and suffer with EDS so this will be mainly what I focus upon in the article. I will consider the prejudices I have faced so far with having an invisible condition as well as the support I have been offered.
    ...
    I'd be interested to know any of your experiences with how you may have been treated having an invisible condition in the education system.

    If you'd like to contribute please message me on Facebook!

    Hopefully this national recognition will help raise awareness about invisible Disabilities like EDS!

    Thanks,

    Abi

    I was struggling with attending college and having M.E. I was told my my college tutors to go and see a counsellor. When I
    was absent they told the rest of the class that I was having some 'personal problems'. I never went back.
