recognise CFS as a DISABILITY
Chronic fatigue syndrome is one of the most debilitating disabilities out there yet the nz government refuses to acknowledge it as a disability. By recognising it as a disability it ensures that 20,000 people are getting the supports they need.
Why the contribution is important
Many people with CFS will work full time before the diagnosis and then after the diagnosis/ a flare up, they have to reduce their hours and their pay, making life 10 times mote stressful (and cfs flare ups can be caused by stress)
allowing 20,000 the supports they need, it allows them to live a life that's more independent while also working with and alongside their limitations.
