My story

[p]Hi everyone! [/p][p]M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) is a incredibly debilitating long-term illness that can affect anyone, including children. Symptoms include fatigue, pain, cognitive dysfunction, low-immunity, nausea and heart palpitations.[/p][p]Life with M.E. can be very difficult. It can be isolating, trapping some in their homes, and disheartening, a partner in crime with depression and anxiety. [/p][p]There is currently no known cure.[/p][p]I was diagnosed with M.E. in 2015 and, to be honest, I thought my life was over. My mental health suffered along with me and I didn't think I had many reasons to smile. Until I received a parcel I hadn't ordered. A parcel full with presents just for me that I had been nominated for, from a charity called Smile for ME. [/p][p]Founded in 2012, Smile for ME's main aims are to give M.E. sufferers (and their carers) a reason to smile when life gives them a thousand to cry with personalised 'smiles' and to raise awareness of a widely misunderstood illness. [/p][p]So please join me, everyone's favourite goth on wheels, as I take inspiration from the quarantine home hair cut trend and Macmillan's Brave the Shave (you know where this is going) and shave my head in my mum's kitchen to raise funds for this amazing charity on the 30th November! [/p]
