    Hi!

    One of my passions is to raise awareness for ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I've been doing this for the past three years. Both online and offline, but online it's through a Twitch.tv channel. Recently I started to donate a percentage of income from this to ME research. I'm not here to advertise for that though - what I would like to do is to see if we can do more to raise awareness for ME/CFS together, as members of TV.Net. Anyone who could imagine themselves being in on this, please feel free to type here or send me a private message.

    I am proud that you are doing this! It's a horrible illness and so many people don't recognize it as real. Thank you!

    Yes, Nebka, there definitely is a huge need for both more education and more research. The education part we can do something about as individuals, and through fundraising we can help support those that do research on ME.

    I still do this raising awareness for ME/CFS on my streams. Haven't had anyone on with me to talk about it, but I'm still interested in doing so if someone wants to.
