@millionsmissing holding visibility demonstrations all over the world today. The severity of this disease was brought to my attention through my work as a biodynamic Craniosacral therapist, and my resilient and inspiring client // teacher @nmbetancourt is an organizer for greater awareness and funding for ME.
At Columbus Circle now, honoring the millions of people around the world who are so sick they can’t leave their homes, and those who did show up but will pay for demonstrating for days, maybe even weeks or months of suffering because they left their homes to advocate for themselves for one day. We desperately need more research and funding from the NIH for people with ME/chronic fatigue syndrome, to educate our healthcare providers, and to get care to those without diagnosis or sufficient health insurance.
What can you do? Join the petition at #meactionnetwork and support the people you know with ME/CFS. Check yourself if you find yourself calling someone “lazy” or disbelieving someone’s lived experience. You might not know that their mitochondria is performing like a wound-down clock. For an amazing education on the illness, watch the incredible documentary Unrest.
I see you, sufferers and survivors of ME. I see your pain and I am moved to tears by your resilience♥️ . . .
