It can be difficult for children with M.E. to understand what is happening to their body and why they feel the way that they do. This children's booklet follows the story of 7 year old Chloe who has M.E. Here she shares her experiences with symptoms, resting and day-to-day life with M.E.
This Action for M.E. factsheet is for parents of children and young people with M.E., teachers, and other professionals supporting the family. It sets out the role of social workers in relation to families with M.E., and what to do if they raise child protection or safeguarding concerns.
The functional ability scale is an important tool to help you work out where you are with your M.E. You can use it to help you describe and measure how much you can do. If you are someone whose symptoms vary a lot, you may want to make a note of where you are on a good day, as well as where you are on a bad day.
