A Life Hidden is a blog by Naomi Whittingham which is "dedicated to those shut away from the world through the intense suffering of ME; suffering that is compounded by the failure of governments, the medical profession and society to adequately support them."[1]


Mission statement[edit | edit source]

A Life Hidden is dedicated to those shut away from the world because of the intense suffering of ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis). This site is a collection of my advocacy work, and I hope that it will serve as a resource for anyone wishing to understand more about the illness.
In raising awareness of ME, my greatest inspiration comes from friends and loved ones whose every moment is consumed by the most extreme physical suffering.  They are alone and forgotten by the world, but every day demonstrate the most immense courage, simply by continuing their struggle to survive. 
Through my writing, I have become less hidden.  I want to use my voice to speak for those who cannot.[2]
