Design D: __ years SURVIVING Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (fill in the number of years yourself)

2 years, 5 years, 10 years or 15 years of someone having M.E. isn't really something to be celebrated (particularly severe M.E.), but it is something that should be acknowledged for the achievement that it is, for all the pain and suffering and strength such an anniversary stands for - particularly when the person is still very ill with the illness. Let your friend know that you care and that you think their achievement is just as worthy of a medal as any athletes (If not a whole lot more)

The book 'Caring For The M.E. Patient' by Jodi Bassett includes a Foreword by international M.E. expert Dr Byron Hyde.

He writes:

"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."
