Severe ME Awareness Day is August 8.
I’m posting for awareness today for my fellow ME patients who are classified as ‘severe’ and ‘very severe’ MECFS patients. Many of them are completely bed bound and haven’t been able to walk, eat, talk, or get out of bed in years.
It’s that time of year again! It’s time to celebrate fellow patient leaders with the WEGO Health Awards. I’m thrilled to say that I’ve been nominated for the 10th Annual WEGO Health Awards in a number of categories. This post tells you what the awards are about and how you can help by endorsing me, especially if I’ve made a difference in your own health journey.
