Facebook support group for students with CFS, ME and fibromyalgia

11 June 2013

Facebook support group for students with CFS, ME and fibromyalgia

At University with ME/CFS?

Our national support group is based online although we try to have face to face meetings and small groups/pairs meet locally. We are here for people with ME/CFS who are at university, taking time out from a course or who are thinking of applying. The group also welcomes students with FM as they face many of the same challenges.

Our aim is provide a friendly positive environment where intelligent people can seek support and encouragement whilst facing the challenge of university with ME/CFS/FM.  You can gain from the experience of others, get advice on DSA/support available, make friends and speak to people who know what it's like!

Overall we are very positive and focus on helping members find solutions or ways to make life easier...but we are also hear to listen when things get too much.

Most of our talk focuses on health issues in relation to university/applying but the news on the latest biomedical research and tips on wellbeing/pacing after also discussed.  Requests posted online are usually answered by a variety of members not just the founders/admin. 

We have over 50 members including several who have now graduated. We are now advertising so hope to have many more members soon! Come join us!
