The Sussex ME/CFS Society is the registered charity that informs, supports and represents those affected by ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) in East Sussex, West Sussex, Brighton & Hove, and Kent.
Several informal support group meetings have been set up by members of the society for people suffering from ME/CFS to meet and share ideas and experiences. You do not have to be a member of the society to come along.
One such group currently meets on the last Wednesday of every month at Fiesta Bistro in Eastbourne (click here for map). It starts at 11:00am. There is no meeting in December.

I am 40 years old and I live in Seaford. I developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome following Glandular Fever whilst at University in Kent. The early years of the illness were the hardest for me, dealing with such a drastic change in my life at an early age. I have come to terms with it more in recent years but I have found the isolation of the illness difficult and that's why I felt like starting and running local support meetings. In addition, I do a couple of hours of voluntary work every week, and I help to run M.E. Support.
