We are a support group for the sufferers, families and carers of Myalgic Encephalopathy (M.E) & Fibromyalgia (F.M), and we have been lending support since 2005.
The main aim of our group is to get together to chat with others who share our illness, and offer each other support; the illness can be very isolating and we are here to make sure each of our members have some support!
We also have a facebook page, to keep us all in contact in between meetings, which you can join once you become a member.
We also offer what we lovingly call a "sleeping membership" for those who are not well enough to attend our meetings, and we write to these members with no expectations of a response. This would enable people who have M.E. or F.M. a buddy to comunicate with when they feel too poorly to either write or to speak.
We know it is a big step to come to a group and meet new people especially when you are feeling poorly, but you will be made so welcome, it helps so much to chat to others who are the same as you. It helps with the guilt and isolation, plus we are all friends you have yet to meet. we are always laughing despite our illnesses. We are not a miserable group! Give us a try! What have you got to lose??
We are lucky enough to be able to have a Hydrotherapy session just for our group in Kings Mill
If you are accepted into the pool however it should be noted that you will be asked to pay a £5 per year membership fee for the group whether or not you attend our meetings, this is only fair to our other members. (obviously we hope you do come to meetings also)
These forms can be accessed from our group, so come along, and join in?
