Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) frequently attracts a stigma that is allowed to be perpetuated by prolonged and repeated ignorance, apathy and misinformation about the disease.

While preparing a response to the Department of Health and Social Care/UKCRC Interim Plan for ME/CFS Report (click here for our response) we thought it would be useful to clarify for all.
So what better way than to use the government's own wording on their web site to create the following description of ME for all to see?
It may help clarify the situation in some minds and hopefully re-educate those who may hold false beliefs about the disease.
