One of our main functions is a meeting each month, where members can talk to others with similar experience in a friendly setting. We exchange information about the treatment and management of CFS/ME and give each other help and support.

We respect the limitations that may come with ME, such as sensitivity to noise or multiple conversations, and try to give people the space and understanding they need. Members keep away when they might have coughs and colds or other infections. You can contribute as little or as much as you wish to the chat. The main benefits are meeting other people with the same condition, not having to explain yourself to others who don't understand, learning more about how other people cope with ME and being able to talk about your own problems if you wish. We try to make our meetings friendly and cheerful, to be positive and discuss problems without being gloomy or moaning.
