It’s that time of year again. Soon, families will gather around the table for holiday feasts. We will give thanks that we are together, share the bounty of the harvest, and bask in the warmth and comfort we feel when those we love surround us.
For people with ME/CFS the holidays present a challenge. Even for those of us who have warm, loving families, it is difficult to rise to the occasion. We can’t talk with our loved ones as much as we would like, sit through long dinners with them, and participate fully in family rituals. The holidays present even more of a challenge for ill people who have no family to share the holidays with.
Let’s make the holidays joyous for those in our community who are spending the holdays alone. Let’s include them in our celebrations. Let’s give them the gift of caring.
Please donate to the AMMES fall fundraiser. So far, we have given people with ME/CFS over $75,000 in direct aid to help them pay their rent, utilities, medical expenses, food, and other basic necessities.
