As a person with M. E, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, & Fibromyalgia I find myself lucky to have access to such a ward, especially as I live in North Lanarkshire where referrals are no longer being made from this area due to a previous decision to only refer now from Glasgow.
I have been in the ward three times in the past 4 years (a week at a time) and each time has been very helpful.
My illness has no real treatment or cure. We need to learn to manage our symptoms & spending time in the ward has helped me dramatically with this.
Especially as I was surrounded by staff who listen & understood the challenges of living with a chronic illness and how it affects everything in your life.
As someone who has to pace their energy levels, simply coming back and forth to the hospital to attend the classes offered to us during the week in the ward would have been very difficult so being able to stay on the ward was fantastic!
People with my illness have very little in terms of specialist help. This is an amazing rare service!
