Event description
Meet up with other people who are living with M.E. Hear useful tips from Keith Anderson, ME nurse, and join in some pampering or art work.

About this Event

Please come along to our informal drop- in session for anyone with an interest in M.E/CFS. If you or someone you know lives with M.E. in Fife, then this event is for you. If you want to meet with other people with M.E. and hear more about the services and support available, then please do drop in between 2pm and 5.30pm.

Mentor M.E.

Mentors and mentees will share how peer support and mentoring has improved their life.

Mini pamper sessions

We will offer some pampering sessions (hand, arm and scalp massage, file and polish) with students from Fife college. You can have more than one treatment at the same time but need to book your half hour slot in advance.

DrawingOut invisible illnesses

We are offering an opportunity to draw about living with M.E. You don’t need any experience of drawing, or worry about making a ‘good’ picture. This session offers the chance to express your feelings about living with an invisible, poorly understood illness. We will provide the materials and an opportunity to be with other people while drawing. Please book this session so we know how many materials to bring.

Clinical Nurse Specialist

Keith Anderson, M.E. Clinical Nurse Specialist based in Fife, will share information and support about pacing, with the opportunity to ask questions.
