“Looking back with ME"

by Hazel Stapleton

A Christian Perspective on M.E.

So you have got M.E. Or you know someone who has it. You are not alone – even though you may feel it. It is thought that M.E. now affects up to 240,000 people in this country, with cases of the illness well out-numbering those of M.S. (multiple sclerosis).

The main sections on this website are taken from my little book about ME, “On Eagle’s Wings – A Christian Perspective on ME” which was first published in 2002 by Quinta Press.

Quote from Professor Anthony L. Komaroff:
Of the personal lessons that I, as a physician, have learned from ME/CFS, perhaps the most important is that, if patients tell you they are suffering, your default assumption should be to believe them—even if you cannot find an answer with the diagnostic technology you first deploy. Above all, never succumb to the temptation to dismiss the patient’s symptoms because you cannot explain them. That may ease your anxiety, but it only multiplies the patient’s suffering.”
