Fighting Disbelief: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Thursday 5 April 2018

 

SBS's The Feed aired a heartbreaking and powerful segment on ME/CFS by Simon Cunich, highlighting barriers faced by people with ME/CFS in accessing desperately needed help through the NDIS.

Thank you to those with ME/CFS who put their health on the line to show what this illness is really like and to all involved in telling this completely personal yet also very political story.

David Tuller, investigative journalist and public health academic, who is exposing the flawed 'science' behind some of the barriers: "I felt like if I stopped, I'd be killing people."

Susan, who has ME/CFS: "I have so much to be able to give... but I need help."

RACGP President, Dr Bastian Seidel: "It's a genuine concern that patients who do have chronic fatigue syndrome really experience prejudices when they seek medical care."

Watch it. Share it. Send the link to your health practitioners. Send it to your federal MP. Join us in seeking a fair go for people with this devastatingly disabling condition.
