Researching Medical Conditions
Good Evening TBers
One of my characters has a medical condition (M.E.) and I want to ensure that I represent this in a way that is as true to life as possible.
I'm comfortable with the factual research but I realise the best source will be from those with direct experience of the condition- i.e. carers and suffers.
So, how do I even begin to interview people on this basis?? I have no experience interviewing as a writer so I wouldn't even know where to start and obviously this is something that would need to be handled sensitively.
