Today is a huge day for those of us dealing with ME. Carol Monaghan MP will be making our case for improved medical education and research funding in this illness.
Although these figures are now probably out of date and on the low side, it’s estimated that there are 250,000 in the UK, and 800 in the York area alone with ME.
These are lives lost which should no longer be ignored. Maybe we’re getting somewhere at last, but we can only hope.
The debate will be live on Parliament TV this afternoon. Let’s hope for good things
