Meg is the Founder and Editor of ITP and Me dot com is a project that emerged to fill the great hole online where there was no information for people with itp about how their lives may be effected by the disorder.  As itp and me grew, it became very obvious that people where looking for real information about how to manage their itp on a daily level – how does it feel, how do other people with itp sleep?
