M.E.
By Jane Lyon
Since Jane developed M.E. she notices that people now treat her quite differently, especially as her speech has been affected. She used to be a successful businesswoman, but people behave as if she was backward. They finish her sentences for her and diminish her as a person.

My heart goes out to you. You are a person just like the healthiest woman alive. I am sorry you have to recieve such patronising and undermiming behaviour as you do not deserve it. Good luck Jane.
