Caroline Cavey, Editor, ME Essential Magazine.
We know that caring for a friend or relative who has M.E. can be just as isolating as the illness is for the patient. Carers do an incredible job and yet they are so often forgotten about.
This year we are launching the equivalent of the popular ME Essential New Friends Club and are offering the opportunity for carers to get to know others in a similar situation.
ME Carers Connected
ME Carers Connected is open to all carers who would like to make new friends with other carer’s.
To get involved, please send in some information about yourself and your situation, along with your email address (or postal address if you do not use email). We will then help to connect you with other carers.
Who knows, you may even meet someone local to you, or at the very least someone who has lots in common with you.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or send by post to Caroline Cavey at The ME Association, 7 Apollo Office Court, Radclive Road, Gawcott, Buckinghamshire MK18 4DF.
Carers Week 2020 (8-14 June)
We still very interested to hear from carers who have a story to tell about caring for someone with M.E.
It is Carers Week in June and we will be featuring stories in ME Essential magazine, online (website and social media) and in the press.
If you'd like to send in your story, or require more information, then please contact Caroline.
