Describe yourself with ME

Choosing the right words to describe yourself can be tricky. It’s important to think about who will be asking and reading the questions, as well as what type of person you want to target with your description. This will help you focus on the qualities that are most relevant to that audience.

For example, if you’re applying to college, it would be helpful to ask friends and family members to give you their describing words for yourself. These could be used in your application or for recommendation letters. It’s also a good idea to get describing words from people who haven’t been close to you, such as teachers or coworkers. This will give you a more objective view of your strengths and weaknesses.

When it comes to describing yourself with ME, it’s also important to be honest. A dishonest answer can skew someone’s opinion of you, so it’s best to be completely honest. In some cases, you can even make the game fun by giving players incorrect answers in a silly situation.

ME/CFS can cause pain and other symptoms in many parts of your body, including headaches, sore throats, tender lymph nodes in the neck and armpits, nausea, difficulty concentrating, unrefreshing sleep and a feeling that your mind is working too hard. You may also be sensitive to light, noise, smells and certain foods.

ME/CFS is more common in women than men, and it can affect all ages. It can occur in any race, ethnicity or socioeconomic background. It’s not clear what causes ME/CFS, but there is evidence of a link between ME/CFS and a variety of infectious illnesses. Some of these include glandular fever, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), herpes viruses such as herpes simplex and HHV-6, hepatitis A, B and C infection, and Ross River virus in Australia. Other infections can trigger ME/CFS, such as labyrinthitis and enteroviruses.
