Living in Scotland with severe ME? Could you help with a worthwhile TV documentary?

The ME Association has been providing background information for an hour-long documentary about M.E. which will be screened by the BBC in Scotland.

And now BBC Alba is looking for a Scottish-based contributor with severe, debilitating M.E. to share their story and thoughts on the illness as part of the programme.

BBC Alba want to show viewers what life is like when M.E. leaves you housebound, unable to walk or even focus on small tasks.

MEA medical adviser Dr Charles Shepherd has already been up to Scotland to record an extensive interview covering research, symptoms and management.
