Severe ME Awareness Day, 8th August 2014 – ME Cover up!

Published by Simon Lawrence on

If you want to raise awareness of the cover up of our serious neurological disease, please share a photo with us.

If you can, get a photo taken of yourself with a sheet over, in whatever way can be tolerated or managed, whether it is a photo in bed, a wheelchair, sitting, standing, it does not matter.

If you are not able to tolerate a sheet over you, get someone else to represent you, if possible.

The important thing is to capture the image of being covered up.

We want to create a powerful visual impact to shock and shame and show for August 8th, Severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Day!

We suggest that you also include a short caption to go along with the photo (this might be to illustrate your invisibility as a sufferer or to illustrate a political point or both). All photos must be submitted by email to by no later than 30th June. These photos will then be placed on the website for Severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Day 2014 and campaign documents (such as an MP Letter, Press Release will be enclosed with your summer Quarterly.
