M.E. and Me book cover

Dr. Hng's book is written with both the busy clinician and the brain fogged patient in mind. Her personal story is followed up with many educational resources. The book aims to serve as a starting point for clinicians learning about ME, and to provide a helpful way for patients to easily explain the problems caused by chronic fatigue syndrome to friends and family who do not understand.
