Learning from a medic’s own journey

Doctor with M.E.: My Journey with “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”

Doctors with M.E. Founder Dr. K.N. Hng shares her story of learning and suffering from ME/CFS in this engaging, thought provoking and concise book. With humanity, wit, and links to a variety of resources, she brings her own journey as a medic to life.

A must read springboard for health care professionals learning about ME/CFS, available in hardcopy and Kindle formats in a growing number of languages:

“I have a story to tell. There are many things in here which I am not at all comfortable sharing, yet I want to tell the whole story. Therefore I have decided to share them. I hope doing so will help educate, inform and raise awareness. From my own experience, both as a doctor and then as a patient, this condition is poorly understood. After all, isn’t everyone tired all the time?

Preface – Doctors with M.E.: My Journey with “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”

Reaction from the medical community and patients

Heart-breaking… vivid imagery… Your story will enlighten many who question the existence of ME.”

Dr. S. Chauwan, Consultant Neurologist

For the first time I feel like this is a serious illness.”

Dr. Deepak Nama, Consultant Respiratory and Acute Medicine

The fact that Dr. Hng had to suffer for so long before being diagnosed is a serious reflection on current medical education in the UK.”

Dr. Nigel Speight, Doctors with M.E. Honorary Fellow, Consultant Paediatrician and ME specialist

I dare anyone who reads it to conclude it’s all in her head.

Jackie, Patient

This book is a must for patients and doctors alike…It explores the tortuous journey of a doctor with ME, the long and difficult journey, and the lack of research, treatment and training for medical professionals. I will be giving this to my GP for future reference.
