Meet M.E. drop-in in Fife on 12 March: all welcome
February 12, 2020
We asked Zara, who attended one of our Meet M.E. drop-in events, what she loved about the session. She said:
"Meeting other people with M.E... Knowing that people are interested in supporting us and helping us to be less isolated... I’d love to attend another meet if you have one."
If this appeals to you, please come to our next free Meet M.E. drop-in if you can. It's an opportunity to meet other people affected by M.E., pick up resources and information, and talk to Action for M.E. staff and volunteer mentors about the benefits of one-to-one peer-mentoring support as part of our brilliant Mentor M.E. project.
Where: Rothes Halls, Kingdom Shopping Centre, Glenrothes, Fife KY7 5NB
When: 2pm to 5pm, Thursday 12 March
Booking: You can see the full programme and register for free on our Eventbrite page; or contact our Project Officer, Avril McLean, on 07753 247099 or by email.
You are warmly invited to call in and stay as long as you like. Our team will be available throughout the afternoon to welcome you as you arrive. Students from the local college will offer mini-pamper sessions (scalp, hand and arm massage, and file and polishes), which can be booked in advance to avoid disappointment. There will be the option to join an arts workshop, Drawing Out Invisible Diseases, that uses simple tools to support you to access and express experiences and feelings around living with an invisible illness.
If you live in the area, we hope you will be able to join us. Please book in advance if you can; we understand that you may not be able to attend on the day due to your health, and there is no need to cancel or send apologises. If you live in another part of Scotland and would like us to host a Meet M.E. event in your local community, then please email our Project Coordinator, Theresa Burns.
Update 6 March Please note that M.E. Specialist Nurse Keith Anderson is no longer available to speak and sends his apologies. Instead, attendees are invited to join our Pacing in conversation session where you can hear share your experiences and learning about self-management and pacing. This will be hosted by a small group of people with lived experience, in caring roles and volunteering as Mentors. You will also receive your of own copy of Action for M.E.’s new pacing booklet.
