The Bateman Horne Center is honored to host a free, two-part discussion panel program: “Living with a Spouse Who has ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia.” Part 1 will feature husbands whose wives are ill and part 2 will feature wives whose husbands are ill in an open discussion about an often difficult subject.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM) have a long, long way to go before they get the attention and resources they deserve. It would take a heroic leap to quickly achieve what people with these diseases deserve and what the diseases themselves – given their economic costs / burdens they impose – should receive.
