Sept. 27th was a day of national and international protesting and recognition of #millionsmissing. ME, myalgic encephalomyelitis, is a greatly disabling, debilitating disease.
ME has been pushed to the sidelines for several decades by the HHS, CDC, NIH and governments around the world, as a figment of the patients’ imaginations. The patients have been insulted with taunts and accusations that they are not really sick. Far from the truth.
We, advocates and patients who are able, must continue to make our voices heard. We need more research and granting of funds by National Institutes of Health to continue and advance the research that has already been started by non-profit organizations with private donations.
We have lots to do to catch up and make up for the time lost and the lives lost along the way. Millions are counting on the world to wake up and recognize ME as a devastating disease to the patients and families.
Please take a look at the site below to familiarize yourself with ME and what is being done to bring it to the forefront in the eyes of the world.
