 Welcome

For everyone interested in joining crMEtea.


We have two types of membership:

‘Active members’ are those who plan to attend real-world meet-ups.

Our ‘Too Ill group’ is for those who are largely housebound and unable to attend our real-world events.

Most of our crMEtea members are from Huntingdonshire and the surrounding towns and villages.

We also welcome members from the rest of rural Cambridgeshire and beyond:
– who feel they would benefit from meet-ups in quiet rural locations with easy access parking.
– who would enjoy contact with others who live in Cambridgeshire town, villages and countryside.

We hold the following events at present:
Regular physical meet-ups and newsletters.

Once we get used to venturing outdoors again, we hope to reintroduce occasional trips to locations within the Cambridgeshire area.
If you would like to join crMEtea please fill out the contact page form. Thank you.

For anyone wishing to join crMEtea, but too ill to come to meet-ups
We provide:
– Regular Zoom meetings and newsletters.

You can join the Zoom meetings, which are shared with our Active group, without giving us prior notice, if you happen to feel well enough on the day.

crMEtea Facebook group:
Open to all members of crMEtea – once they have joined the group via the contact form, and been accepted into the group.

For anyone living in other areas of Cambridgeshire.

Please check our Links section which has details of nearby groups, so you can choose which is the most convenient group(s) for you to join.

We are an independent meet-up group for people who have M.E. and live in and around Cambridgeshire. Accompanying friends and relatives of people with M.E. are also very welcome to come.

The primary aim of this group is to offer an opportunity for local people who have M.E. to meet together in a relaxed, friendly and supportive atmosphere.

Everyone in our group is in the same ‘M.E. boat’ as you, so we hope you feel confident to come along!

You may have been given a diagnosis named as one of the  illnesses listed below.
M.E. – Myalgic Encephalomyelitis
ME/CFS
CFS
The name SEID is being used for ME in some countries (Systemic Exertional Intollerance Disease).
There is no universally accepted diagnosis yet, or even full agreement about the name of our illness. We hope this will change soon.  What we do know is that ME  is a multi-system physical illness with a variety of symptoms.
Detailed information about the symptoms of M.E. and other advice can be found at the ME charity:
The ME Association (www.meassociation.org.uk).
In line with the latest scientific evidence we consider PEM (Post Exertional Malaise) to be a distinctive and cardinal symptom of ME.
If you see any inaccuracies in the information on our website, or you think it needs updating in any way, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Thank you.
