ITV Channel TV journalist, Gary Burgess, is sharing his experience of living with ME, ahead of a screening of a film about the illness in Jersey.
ME, also known as Cronic Fatigue Syndrome, is a condition that causes severe fatigue, chronic pain, as well as a loss in concentration known as "brain fog".
Gary has been signed off from work for 14 months, after being diagnosed last year and describes the illness as like having a "battery that won't charge".
Since his diagnosis, Gary has set up an online support network called "Zonked Club", which aims to offer support for people with fatigue-linked illnesses.
