It's getting a lot of views....

From the article.

ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), otherwise known as CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), is one of the most misunderstood diseases in modern times.

It’s an illness that I have spent the past 11 years fighting in more ways than one.

Not only have I had to fight the disease itself, but I’ve also had to fight the attitudes towards the disease by the general public and health professionals.

Misconceptions

Trying to articulate to the general public what it actually is has been a difficult task.

You see, ME/CFS isn’t an illness that just leaves you feeling “a little tired”.

It is disease that leaves the patient with relentless mental and physical exhaustion.

Unlike a normal person who can sleep to alleviate feeling tired, the type of fatigue that comes with ME/CFS is never relieved by sleep.
