CUMBERNAULD resident, Samantha McInnes, tells Cumbernauldnl.info that her M.E. support group was "steadily attended."
Once Cumbernauldnl.info reported on Ms McInnes' mission to set up a blog and educate the world about Myalgic Encephalopathy (M.E.) we were proud to watch the site grow and expand, to become an offline venture.
Yesterday (July 6th) saw Samantha hold the first, of many, M.E. support groups. The group, which has held at the Moodiesburn Pivot Centre was "steadily attended," according to Sam, who later told us that: "There was a steady attendance, compared to other people I know, across the country, who run the same sort of group, it was a good attendance. It takes time for these things to build up and really create an audience. However the group is still good for people with a very misunderstood illness; they need to be able to talk to other people going through the exact same thing.

"Another factor in the drop in numbers was that there were a few people on holiday some people who were unfortunately too ill. I believe this is a positive start and I am really looking forward to the next meeting."
Sam holds her M.E. Support Group on the first Wednesday of every month, but we'll keep you up-to-date, so don't worry. For more information on Sam, visit her website.
