ME/CFS is a chronic neuroimmune disease that has many symptoms, affecting all systems of the body. There are approximately 150 000 Australians with ME/CFS and millions of people are affected worldwide. Approximately 25% of people with ME are severely affected and are housebound or bedridden.

Shiloh Moore of ByShi Art and ME/CFS Advocacy www.byshi.hogfish.net will hopefully introduce the session, health permitting. She has had ME/CFS for 27 years, many years housebound and bedbound. She will have 2018 Calendars of her artwork ($25), and her autobiographical poetry book ‘Stranger In The Moving Chair’ ($15) for sale with 20% going toward ME/CFS Research.

A TED Talk by ‘Unrest’ Director Jennifer Brea is available for viewing:
