Our surveys show that 77% of adults with M.E. lose their job because of the illness.
Of these, 28% said they were either forced to resign or were dismissed.
In some cases, this meant losing not only their income but their home.
For many it meant losing their independence, status, purpose, security, social contact.
M.E. can affect anyone, at any age, whatever their background or economic situation.
What if your colleague, the person with M.E., was you?
