MEMap Original helps you map a 'big picture' of wellness, from the peak spiritual wisdoms which make you YOU, to the healthy wellbeing you ultimately want, to the smaller skills and strategies which save your day. The App then helps you develop a clear sense - a complete map - of the illness and anything else which gets in the way of the wellness you've described. And offers a format, tools and a space to tackle symptoms and build strategies. Being explicit about what works for you and the areas where nothing much works is an invaluable way of offering yourself - and intuitively feeling your way towards - the kinds of inputs you may need. Support from others comes in two forms. Access to the reported wisdom of 'ME recoverers' allows you to personalise what seems to have been useful for others. And MEMap has communication functionality so the recovery process can be shared - both in caring supportive ways and in positive, creative collaborations. Others who have more energy than you can also remotely help create and develop a useful plan/App. Used in a certain way (see steps here), MEMap Original offers a full 'App-sized' protocol to plan a genuinely holistic recovery path. Its website is written blog style to allow you to really invest in the issues that surround ME. Though ways to keep things short and simple ARE highlighted.
MEMap Lighter Load is a simpler tool than MEMap Original. It is designed to help you make the transition from difficult stuff towards easier, or even quite wonderful, wellbeing. This App aims to create a direction of travel FROM stressors, any load you carry and anything which depletes energy, TOWARDS lighter load lifestyles, more evenly balanced energy, genuinely relaxed healing states and better connections to things that inspire and energise. This ideal destination is much the same as MEMap Original's 'big picture' of wellness. MEMap Lighter Load sets out some fertile areas where it may be possible for stressors to be sidestepped, stress busted and load lightened. It provides a format to adopt and personalise these areas, and identify or express your own more individual stressors. Lighter Load then offers tools to build strategies and the habit of journeying from load to low load. The website does not meander around the issues which surround ME. It offers a quick chance to configure your App with a broad, personalised, big picture map of wellness and where you would like to be. And focusses very quickly on means to head in that direction - either by tackling the difficult barriers in your way, or attempting to sidestep them. Communication and sharing with other MEMap/meMap users is offered as an optional extra.
meMap 'Stress Stuff to Best Stuff' is designed for people who do not have ME/CFS. It aims to help you build a direction of travel in your life from days that involve too much stress or load - or are simply too average - to days more 'centred' on what you value, who you want to be and the fabulous peak perceptions about life you almost certainly have. Whether it's the small stuff that makes your day work or the big stuff that makes it a day you were born to live, you are encouraged to capture and bottle all the things that comprise the best living you can live. meMap 'Stress Stuff to Best Stuff' sets out some fertile areas where stress may be busted and load may be lightened. It provides a format to develop your own thinking in these areas, and identify or express your own more individual stressors and difficult issues. It offers tools to build strategies and the habit of journeying from anything involving too much stress or load, towards your best stuff. Communication and sharing with other MEMap/meMap users is offered as an optional extra.
meMap Pro is designed for practitioners - or those offering a package of support - to remotely communicate with their clients, or make key concepts, goals or strategies accessible in an App/social media type format. One of the possibilities is for clients to use meMap to build a picture of the issues they face and what they want at an early stage of their relationship with the practitioner, so that relationship begins with rich 'sharing' in a format designed to evolve. Practitioners can remotely configure clients' Apps with the concepts they use or with food for thought. They can use a computer to build a library of the ideas they favour - reusing this information for multiple clients. For clients with ME, they can also utilise the categories developed for MEMap Original. Communication functionality comes with the App. Various additional services are available: for example, the ability to broadcast info to workshop attendees and online groups, or the design of a bespoke Configuration Journey or web resource where clients can populate their Apps by selecting from and responding to concepts provided by the practitioner.
