I have just viewed a video of a young man who has M.E. He looks healthy, (but of course, he isn’t) and he’s spending some time at the ocean for the shoot. M.E. is an “invisible” disease.
He has the following announcement at the top of his site:
“ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, sometimes called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CFS) is a serious and often severely disabling long-term neurological disease which also affects the body’s immune system, hormones, muscles and circulation. Up to 250,000 people in the UK have ME, and millions around the world. There is no cure yet. But in these videos, I hope to bring together some of the best available wisdom and advice to help people manage ME and hopefully even look forward to getting at least partly better or even making a good recovery – whilst genuinely seeking to understand and support people with severe ME and who, through absolutely no fault of their own, are not getting better.”
This video is a little more than 6 minutes, but it goes quickly, because you get caught up in what he is saying. Graphics help to emphasize what he says. He “tells it like it is.”
