Useful aids for CFS and ME sufferers
I sometimes hear from my patients or their carers about some useful gadgets or aids that make their lives much easier.
I am always grateful for any such recommendations and feel that the best way to make them known to as many people as possible is to list them here.
This is a start. If you are using an aid that you feel might benefit others, then please let me know (or contact Katie Twinn or Craig Robinson on my Facebook Groups - see below) and I, or they, will add the details to this page.
Ideas from my Facebook Group - 'Support for followers of Dr Myhill's protocol'

Shopping trolley with seat
A patient has mentioned to me the idea of trolleys with seats. Here is a link Shopping Trolley with seat This is what she says:
- "I can’t stand or walk long enough to get to the shops often enough so I looked to buy a stick seat ages ago but didn’t buy one because I felt too embarrassed to use a stick and didn’t want to carry one but I have just bought this trolley seat and it's brilliant. I haven’t been well enough to go out yet but the seat feels really safe, comfortable and easy to pull out and I won’t need to carry my shopping. I really love it and the service was excellent."
