disabling and potentially fatal neurological diseases such as M.S.
Assisting the M.E. patient in the use of computers and technology
Assisting the M.E. patient in the use of computers and technology. The video 'Why everyone with M.E. needs a computer' talked about the enormous benefits to be had with computer use by M.E. patients. Unfortunately, using a computer is one also of the things that M.E. patients have to be most careful with, in order to prevent serious relapse. This paper looks at some of the ways that M.E. patients can get the most out of their computers, TVs and HDD/DVD recorders, mobile phones and other electronic devices while also using them in the most M.E.-friendly ways.

The book 'Caring For The M.E. Patient' by Jodi Bassett includes a Foreword by international M.E. expert Dr Byron Hyde.
"There is so much false information that is picked up and disseminated it is near impossible to hold one’s head above the water and sift through this morass of misinformation. Any attempt to seek the truth is always a major difficulty. Somehow, Jodi Bassett and Hummingbird have managed to plow through this field of weeds."
"This is a book that deserves being read, not only by patients and physicians with an interest in M.E. but the bureaucrats in the USA Centers for Disease Control who have done so much damage to the understanding of M.E. I recommend her book to all and wish it every best success."
