Good management can be the key that helps people with ME/CFS travel along the road to recovery and improve quality of life. Of course, it’s one thing to know how to manage the condition, but quite another when it comes to putting that into practice. The help and support of family and friends is important. It is also helpful to look at the sorts of things that can get in the way of good management. This leaflet reviews in depth the three most common barriers and considers how they can be overcome:
- Lack of acceptance of the condition,
- Poor skills in managing the illness,
- Other people’s reactions to ME/CFS.
The ME Association telephone helpline – ME Connect – is available every day of the year, during the hours of 10am-12noon, 2pm-4pm and 7pm-9pm. Please phone: 0344 576 5326 if you have any questions or would simply like to talk to someone who is there to listen.
