Thank you for this survey. The impact of my very severe ME son’s condition on my life has been total. Since I’ve started caring for my son I’ve lost my personal life and my own health, and can no longer work … But I’m one of the lucky ones because my employer’s long-term disability is supporting us, along with GoFundMe and help from my other children. Otherwise, this situation would be impossible – as it is for far too many.
