New ME/CFS Website Offers Support
The site is called MEcuperate, and one of the things I like about it is its very positive and life-affirming focus, as you can see just from its name. Its focus, as explained on the homepage, is very similar to that of this blog - to help people to LIVE with this illness, with emphasis on support, encouragement, and inspiration.
There are many informational portions - including Managing ME, Recipes, and Useful Links - of the website, but its real potential comes from its interactive aspects.
So, get started by registering for the site with a username and password. Then you can participate in its discussion forums or add your comments to any of the areas of the site, including recipes, pasttimes, crafts, and many others. Two areas I am most excited about are the book club and movie/TV club, where participants can discuss books and movies. The first Movie Club selection is Skyfall, so once you are logged in, feel free to add your thoughts and comments!
I'm excited about this new way for people with ME/CFS to connect with each other and hope you will go check it out!
