Sometime I feel angry. How can I use my anger in a “positive” way?

Anger is also a normal part of ME/CFS. Many people find it helpful to communicate with their friends via text and social media and express how they are feeling, while others write ME/CFS advocacy letters and express their anger in a way that educates people. Everyone expresses their anger in different ways, so find the positive way that works best for you! For ideas, email
