CFS treatment options
We have little to no treatment options for CFS/ME patients in this country. There are a lot of treatments offered in other countries that are not offered here. This syndrome affects a lot of people and is basically ignored. There are no funded supports available other than walking frames and mobility supports if needed. There is potential for recovery, but our health system doesn't support or recognise this. This is a severe, chronic illness that can lead to devastating deterioration, it's about time patients with this disease were treated fairly and offered care, treatment and support in line with other severe illnesses and conditions.
Why the contribution is important
Proper care could potentially save lives, ease the burden on the welfare and health care sectors, and give people quality of life and potentially recovery from illness. It would benefit families and communities by allowing CFS sufferers the ability to parent well, to work, to be involved and to live their lives instead of just existing.
