This week is M.E awareness week.
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) is a long-term (chronic), fluctuating, neurological condition that causes symptoms affecting many body systems, more commonly the nervous and immune systems. M.E. affects an estimated 250,000 people in the UK, and around 17 million people worldwide.
People with M.E. experience severe, persistent fatigue associated with post-exertional malaise, the body’s inability to recover after expending even small amounts of energy, leading to a flare-up in symptoms.
Below are some links provided by my good friend Jess Sylvie, who suffers from ME.
Jess is an incredible lady, who raises a lot of awareness and fundraising for ME, while battling this horrible illness herself. Jess surprised me with a very special gift this week and i am truly honoured.
Jess hand crafted this incredible Perry Winkle bag, the knitting, stitching, everything is gorgeous. The time and dedication gone into this from Jess is outstanding. Thank you so much Jess, means the world to me.
