On May 25, 2016, #MEAction is sponsoring a community-organized protest at Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) across the country, and in cities all over the world.

As a community, we are bowled over by the response.  The protest started as a single effort in Washington, D.C., but as of today there will be organized protests in:

We are still looking for people to organize in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Kansas City, and Denver — imagine the power in saying that every regional HHS office in the United States was included in the protest!
We released the #MillionsMissing Protest Demands, with four main goals for the future of ME/CFS in the U.S.:

  1. Increase research funding and program investments for ME/CFS commensurate with the severity of the disease: $250 million per year.
  2. Accelerate clinical trials for ME/CFS (there are no current FDA-approved medications for the disease).
  3. Disseminate accurate medical education and clinical guidelines to end the spread of harmful, erroneous information about ME/CFS.
  4. Provide HHS leadership, oversight and a serious commitment to urgently address ME/CFS.

We have finished our press release to help educate the press about ME/CFS and the issues we face as a community.

This is our fight for change.  Can you help?

If the goals of the #MillionsMissing protest are important to you, we hope you will be able to donate to the cause.  Every little bit helps!

Goodbye to graded exercise therapy but concerns about physical activity programmes – Community Discussion

There were significant concerns about the recommendation of a physical activity programme in the draft ME/CFS guideline, even with the caveats attached. The recommendation that a physical activity programme should be considered if patients would ‘like’ to start one, was felt to imply that there is a choice or a desire involved, rather than increased physical activity being impossible for many.
