'See ME': a song and video for ME/CFS patients worldwide

This song and video was created by the Belgian artist and ME/CFS patient Robin De Man and his son Seppe. It commemorates the millions who have disappeared from public life and were forced to live an isolated life between four walls because of ME/CFS.

The song is a cover of Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol with the lyrics adjusted to reflect living with ME/CFS. The video shows pictures of patients with severe ME/CFS taken from their beds and their homes, including those who have now sadly passed away.

Feel free to share the video with friends, family and other patients (you can't use the pictures without permission though).
