Today, we are launching our new merchandise range – Don’t assuM.E.
Assumptions about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (otherwise known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) are rife, create stigma, and can cause additional problems for the global M.E/C.F.S community. Some of these false assumptions are listed below:
Don’t assuM.E that you know what M.E/C.F.S is because you read about it in a newspaper or on Google.
Don’t assuM.E that M.E/C.F.S doesn’t kill.
Don’t assuM.E that all patients have the same experience of M.E/C.F.S.
Don’t assuM.E that M.E/C.F.S is ‘just tiredness’.
Don’t assuM.E that it’s a female illness.
Don’t assuM.E that there are effective treatments available.
Don’t assuM.E that it’s not a disability.
Don’t assuM.E that it’s not a global health crisis.
Don’t assuM.E that super-fit humans can’t get M.E/C.F.S.
Don’t assuM.E that M.E/C.F.S is simply ‘deconditioning’.
Don’t assuM.E that we are ‘well’ because we are out in public.
Don’t assuM.E our condition isn’t devastating because it is ‘invisible’.
Don’t assuM.E that all M.E/C.F.S patients are unable to work.

Don’t assuM.E that what a patient can do today can be replicated in two days’ time.
