ME/CFS is a condition that is disabling and life changing. It can strike anyone, at anytime. It knows no prejudice, and will ruin a patients quality of life. Health experts have gone on record to say that they regard ME/CFS as debilitating as end stage AIDS and CANCER.
The condition varies from person to person, but in the majoirty of cases, life is over as that person knew it, and for some, its a condition that leaves them bed bound and house bound for months, and even years at a time. Currently, YOU, the UK government seeks to treat this illness with Cognative Therapy, a treatment that most patients reject as uselss.
Please listen to those who are ill, as this condition is growing, and each year, thousands of new cases of the condition are detected in the UK, does it really need to turn into an epidemic before you take a realistic approach to this illness ?
Im asking that you set some money aside in your budget to commence bio-chemical research into this condition and find out what the cause is, and hopefully, find a cure. Living with any chronic illness is bad enough, but when there isnt even treatment let alone a cure, is worse.
On behalf of myself and my fellow 100,000 signatures, please take this condition seriously and help the people who put you in office. We need you now more than ever.
