Hello All,

and welcome to my little corner of the world, or to be more precise, my little corner of the World Wide Web. I am Samantha McInnes (but please call me Sam) and in the summer of 2010 I was diagnosed as having Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E) also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (C.F.S) and Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (P.V.F.S).

I originally started my blog The Gospel According to Sam in 2011, after a bad relapse which left me unable to walk without the use of sticks for over a year. I wanted to tell my story about living with this misunderstood illness in an honest and funny way, that would portray the realities of this condition to your average joe, as well as provide support for fellow sufferers.

Since then the Blog has developed a Support Group, has been read around the world and provides support and inspiration for many sufferers. No longer is Sam and M.E just one girl sitting in her room telling stories of her trials and tribulations. We are now a voluntary committee with with a board of 4 members who are dedicated to providing support to M.E sufferers in our local area. Our motto is “Stay positive and laugh as often as you can”. If you would like to get in contact you can leave a message on the Have Your Say section or email samandmeblog@hotmail.co.uk.

Thanks for visiting, Sam xxx
