Tony Britton, ME Association, has issued the following notice:
"A journalist with a Scottish newspaper wants to talk to a woman with ME living in Scotland who has experienced loneliness because of the illness (now or in the past) to be part of a feature on the subject of loneliness.
"The interview will be conducted by phone or in person and a photo will be arranged. If you live in Scotland's central belt, it will be easier to travel out to see you.
"If you are willing to be involved, please let me know by 4pm on Friday, 11 November. You can reach me by emailing Tony Britton or by calling Tony on 01406 370293 (between 9.30am and 7pm)." [End of notice].
Support when you are isolated
If you are lonely and living with M.E., Action for M.E.'s online forums - the Scottish Hub and/or M.E. friends online, can be a lifeline, as can our telephone support line.
Please do not suffer in silence. You are not alone.
In the longer term, our Scottish Co-ordinator, Susan Webster, is interested in hearing from anyone with M.E. in Scotland who has Skype, who may be interested in taking part in a Skype peer support feasibility project. If you have Skype and would like to take part, please contact our Project Co-Ordinator in Scotland.
