Welcome to the Meetup Site


Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

What is this site?

This site is designed to be an easy way to start finding out about ME, to find local support groups, and to introduce you to some of the online forums and organisations, It also has links for people with Fibromyalgia.

There are very many ME sites out there, and an enormous amount of information to absorb. I hope that this website will help you to make a start. I have tried to keep it simple.

Do not worry if you feel bewildered

I remember how overwhelmed I felt when I first went online to find out more about ME. I have always found that people on these links have been very patient, understanding and helpful. We were all beginners once. They will welcome you.

On the map there are links to support groups that hold regular meetings in the South-East and within the M25, although with the new website being able to use the Google map, groups from elsewhere in the UK are welcome to join us. If you know of one which would like to be included, please contact me.

There are also links to some of the main associations and to social media.

New to M.E.?

Many people with ME have said to me,"I wish someone had told me .... when I first went down with ME",so the menu takes you to a collection of those topics. I have tried to be as impartial and clear as possible, but the comments there are mine – please do not expect perfection!

Action for ME and the ME Association have many useful booklets that you can buy or download as pdf files, and these develop the ideas much more fully.
