I’M sure many of your readers will have experienced isolation at some point in their lives.

Sadly, many people with ME face isolation for years on end as friends, family and professionals struggle to accept the true impact of the illness. Others live alone, too ill to keep up a social life.

For ME Awareness Month this May, Action for ME is sending a simple message: don’t ignore ME

We’re taking action to end the ignorance, injustice and neglect experienced by the 250,000 people with ME in the UK.

Find out how you can make a difference to the lives of people with ME right now at actionforme.org.uk or call 0117 927 9551.
