Living With ME: Gary Burgess Shares His Story

ITV News

 

From ITV News.

 

ITV Channel TV journalist, Gary Burgess, is sharing his experience of living with ME, ahead of a screening of a film about the illness in Jersey.

ME, also known as Cronic Fatigue Syndrome, is a condition that causes severe fatigue, chronic pain, as well as a loss in concentration known as “brain fog”.

Gary has been signed off from work for 14 months, after being diagnosed last year and describes the illness as like having a “battery that won’t charge”.

ME can be really hard to explain because you can’t see it.

The best way I describe it is, imagine you’ve got an old mobile phone where the battery won’t fully charge. ME is like that.
