Some people with ME or CFS are well enough to do some work; especially after seeing some recovery. Action for ME has produced a detailed guide for those in work.
ME/CFS is covered by the Equality Act 2010. Employers have additional legal responsibilies towards people with this condition including making reasonable adjustments and not discriminating.
Pacing-booklet Action for ME has produced a detailed guide to pacing; shorter guides are available at the Elevate meetings. ” ‘Pacing’ is about balancing activity and rest to help manage M.E. and work towards recovery. Patients and many professionals recognise its value. Pacing yourself when you’re ill might sound like common sense, but that doesn’t mean thatembarking on an effective pacing programme is second nature, or easy. It requires a good understanding of the principles of pacing, combined with commitment to making them work for you. Pacing can help you to take control of your condition and enable you to become an expert in managing your illness. “
