People suffering from both ailments must be considered as the most vulnerable people and they should get the priority for covid19 vaccinnation same as the most vulnerable people with other health problems.

This is a neurological condition as recognised by the WHO but not, apparently, by the British Government.

I am signing as a ME/CFS sufferer who also battled with this issue. After a hugely frustrating and stressful period of time, I finally discovered and re-registered with a GP who has the trusted clinical judgement needed to understand and prioritise my conditions. ME/CFS needs to be listed so that we don't need to battle to prove our eligibility, especially for those who are too ill to do it!

I have had M.E. for 15yrs. It hurts that people still don't believe this illness and how badly it affects your whole life. Just catching a simple cold that others shake off without any trouble causes worse and prolonged symptoms for me, and this builds up each time I get any kind of virus. I dread to think how my body will react to covid, which is far worse than a simple cold.
I don't have the energy to argue with them (even writing this has been a struggle) when they still say no, even with all the evidence they have been given to justify why M.E. should be on the priority list.
Hopefully together we can make them listen.

Without a vaccination, ME sufferers quality of life is further diminished. Half the country is vaccinated and it is scandalous that sufferers are still waiting.

It won't affect me as I am still undiagnosed after 8 years, but its wrong that this is ignored by the vaccine process, I've been terrified of getting it , dreading what would happen if I survived it,

Because I have a friend that fights this disease and with all they put up with why wouldn’t they be aloud the vaccines, don’t they have enough to fight each and every day.

I have ME and I believe we should be taken seriously and not fobbed off any more. I shielded (not quite as strictly as I am now but to the point where I only went to a pub on my birthday each year and knew that I would be ill for a month afterwards because I would pick up a bug/virus while I was there) before Covid19 because if I socialise with a group of people I always end up with a major relapse. With ME you often get exacerbated ME symptoms rather than the cough/cold/sickness bug symptoms everyone else around you is suffering from - my ME is manageable at the moment and as I live alone if I have a relapse I cannot look after myself. I wish GPs would take as much acre over us as we do ourselves.
