A Young Hero



From ME-foreldrene.  The ME Parents Group.


Truls, a young boy of 12 years, has ME. Because of his ME, Truls is rarely able to leave home.  But when his doctor Kristian Sommerfelt asked for his help in educating medical students, Truls didn’t hesitate at all. He agreed to join Sommerfelt’s lecture. «We need more doctors like Kristian» Truls says, «and so I have to explain to them what this is all about».

Truls’ mother, Sigrid, was present at the lecture. «It all went really well, and it was a good experience for Truls. I have to say this again and again – Kristian Sommerfelt is a unique doctor.»

Today’s lecture was attended by medical students. Sommerfelt did an interview of Truls, as he explained what it is like to be a child suffering from ME.
