As I stated on the home page there is a lot of information available for anyone who wants to know more about M.E. It is just a case of knowing what and where to look for it. On this page I hope to be able to point you in the right direction of some of the reading material that is available, either from your local library, bookshop or on-line book store. Though this is not in anyway a definitive list, there are books I have read and now can't find, or just simply do not remember the title of, it will at least give you a starting point.
If you know of a good book about M.E. that you think would be beneficial to people with M.E. and you would like to see included here, please forward me the following details: A short summery of the book, in your own words, try and keep it below fifty words if at all possible. The book title, the author and the ISBN number. You can e-mail me by using this link.
A good book to read, even if your only interest is to find out how M.E. affects different people in different ways. Here you will find the stories of six people from different walks of life, and how they have come to live and deal with M.E. Definitely a good book for the M.E. sufferer who knows nothing about the illness, it is in some way reassuring to know that you are not alone and that there are others feeling exactly as you do.
Sorry I have not read this book so cannot comment on it. If you have read it please send me details through the method suggest at the top of this page. Please do not send me a review taken from the Amazon web site or any other site like it, that is naughty and for obvious reasons cannot be used.
Out of print, but available in libraries. This book is excellent, it talks about all the emotions you go through when suffering from ME and offers guidance on how to cope with the varied emotions. It is easy to read and I felt that it could have been me who had written the book I could relate to it so well. I would recommend anyone suffering from ME reads this book and I am going to ensure that my husband reads it so he can understand better what I am feeling as I find it difficult to express sometimes. The author Joyce Fox is an ME sufferer and also a trained counsellor. It is such a shame that this book is out of print, as I really want to buy it.
With thanks to Jane Singleton for the information.
The author is a doctor with ME. He provides practical suggestions on living with it, scientific research details, and looks at alternative medicine with a scientific, but not dismissive approach. He treats his readers as adults and has evidently thought really hard about his subject. It just is the best.
