M.E. Support Facebook Page
M.E. Support has provided many free services over the years in a bid to raise awareness. This included a popular message board and useful chat room facilities. These have been replaced with a moderated space on Facebook, the popular social networking service, in order to keep up with demand. This is an ideal place to read and comment on the latest news, discuss and seek advice on issues affecting M.E., along with getting to know like-minded people.
