I suffer from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, a devastating neurodegenerative, mitochondrial disease that painfully affects every part of my life. I don't work or drive a car anymore. I utilize a parking pass and a walking device. Most of us are either house-bound or bedridden. Some of us end up being fed through tubes for years because they don't have the strength to open their eyes. It has been recorded as a cause in death certificates. There are no universal drugs or treatments. My illness is invisible, but the quality of my life is poor and limited. Please help support people like me in the fight against this awful disease.
