We are very saddened, as will be the entire ME community, to hear the news about Dr. MacIntyre who died last night.
We were very privileged to have had this great lady as our Medical Adviser and that our trustees had the opportunity to meet up with her at the Irish ME Trust annual therapy week in Dublin for a number of years.
It was also an honour to have had Dr. MacIntyre over to Northern Ireland for one of our monthly meetings in 2013, where our members also got an opportunity to learn from her great wisdom and knowledge.
Dr. MacIntyre has left us all a legacy with her book on managing ME and as many patients refer to as ‘The ME Bible.’
We want to share these memories of happier days with a great lady who was much loved and cherished by all who knew her.
