    Hi @lottiemoulster - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. There are quite a few people here that have M.E. whom you'll hopefully hear from. Please have a look around & join in any discussions that you wish.
    Please, if you have any questions, do say. I hope your studies are going well.
