Myself and other ME sufferers have a debilitating, life threatening condition that is not easily diagnosed. Treatments are extremely expensive. As a result we cannot satisfy the Centrelink disability payment criteria and are denied a payment or put on newstart. The lack of money means no treatment and the stress of living below the poverty line. Many ME sufferers die. Centrelink need to understand the complexity of this condition and provide people with the disability support payment so they have the money they need to get treatment.
