This is ME - Myalgic Encephalomyelitis

ME isn't just being "tired all the time", it's an "invisible illness" - even if we look OK, we feel terrible, ill and exhausted after just the tiniest bit of activity, and then need to rest completely for hours or days afterwards. Exercising too much or pushing our bodies makes us worse. It's like having the most severe flu, and trying to run a marathon, at the same time. All of the time. Our muscles have no energy, it's impossible to think straight, and literally dozens of other symptoms, affecting our sleep, unbearable pain, dizziness, affecting our immune systems, hormones, emotions, heart, digestion, being too hot or cold, being too sensitive to light, noise and smell, and more.
