Person with ME


I attended the graded exercise programme in Barts 22 months ago.

I was "sold" the programme under an amazing high degree of pressure and selling.

I could not do the increase of 30% of my activity, realistically though it was supposed to be 10%. The physio refused to believe that I could not do it! She told me I must be able to do it after I had tried and failed.

My entire immune system seemed to break down and since those few weeks I am now on high doses of anti viral medication from my GP and will be for years.

I would never do get/gat again or recommend anyone to do so. Try the pacing, but please refuse to do the Enforced targets. I was an innocent fool.
