Humans of ME/CFS
I got ME when I was 15 after a vaccine trial in Norway (Meningococcal B). There are over 300 people in Norway that have now come forward about getting ME after receiving this vaccine. I was a very sporty kid, but after I got the vaccine, I was unable to attend any sport or school. I got continually worse, but no doctor believed me to be ill. It took me 15 years and a change of country to get a diagnosis, by a very well-known doctor who knows this illness well: Dr Rosamund Vallings in New Zealand. She gave me all the latest information and great support.
I am still fighting for my diagnosis to be respected and to get treatment in the medical and social field 24 years on in Norway.
Serious biomedical research is paramount.
