Don't suffer alone with ME
Research shows that the teaching profession has one of the highest number of people affected by this devastating illness.
The condition is a much misunderstood illness which produced a wide range of painful and debilitating symptoms. Many teachers will have developed this illness through being in the profession; either through repeated exposure to theviruses in any classroom or through the effects of constant long-term stress at work. Many teachers also have to contend with unsympathetic and often hostile colleagues. These teachers need support and understanding.
I have suffered from ME for four years, I am unable to work and know the feelings of despair that accompany this illness. I have set up a nationwide support network for teachers and I can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post.
