site for ME sufferers world-wide. The site is run by Ally Petty, who has lived
in Lancing and Sompting since she was about 2. Whilst studying in her first year
of Sixth Form at Boundstone, she became ill with what is now known as ME (Myalgic
Encephalomyelitis). Thanks to the invaluable understanding of some teachers at
the time, she was able to take the time out, and was able to go back and study
both part-time at Boundstone and Northbrook respectively which allowed her to
work on her recovery without compromising the future.
The original site
entitled ME Friends is a homepage of sorts where people can come and read her
story, find links to other ME websites globally, and more.
