Awareness day too much for fatigue group
Tomorrow is international awareness day but members of Nelson's chronic fatigue support service say they are too tired to arrange any activities.
The illness, which is officially known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, or ME, is characterised by incapacitating fatigue.
ME/CFS Nelson Support Group co-ordinator Anna Loach said though a few posters had been put in some libraries, the illness meant the group was not able to plan anything else to mark the awareness day.
Four of the group's five committee members suffer from the condition.
"They can feel great one day and the next they feel really burnt out."
Despite not having anything organised for tomorrow, Mrs Loach said the group was determined to expand services and support.
"They've really got the drive and they are positive about the cause."
The group has drafted a constitution and is seeking more funding to employ an area co-ordinator to support families in the wider Nelson region.
