This is the face.

This is the face of someone who is too sick to take her child to school each day.

This is the face of someone who can’t have a wash without help.

This is the face of someone who was ignored by doctors for 6 years.

This is the face of someone who is often disbelieved.

This is the face of someone who is having a good day if she can make it downstairs by herself.

This is the face of someone who is 80% housebound.

This is the face of someone with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

This is the face of someone with a chronic illness.

This is the face of someone with an invisible illness.

This is the face of just one of hundreds of thousands of people with chronic, invisible, life changing, debilitating and disabling illnesses.

This is the face of someone who wants the world to know about invisible illnesses.

This is the face of someone who lives in pain all day, every day.

This is the face of someone who wants awareness.

This is the face of someone who wants a cure.

This is the face of me & of M.E.
