Often I refer to having a hidden illness or an invisible one. To be fair, to some extent it is accurate, there aren't many signs of illness if you were to look at me.

I hate trying to squeeze around places and the width of the isles … Continue reading Access To The Outside World
Today is the first time I don't feel like a zombie since London. It was one heck of an adventure, one that inevitably left me a broken mess. It was worth it and I've created some wonderful memories of Baloo's home. I met nearly everyone who I needed to and I found myself pushing through … Continue reading Post London Wrap Up
I honestly don't want to scare anyone by writing this because people recover or experience M.E/CFS at their own pace. My story isn't a tale of doom for you all but also there is a part of me that's saying "YAY YOU DID IT!! How I don't know but YOU DID IT" So many times … Continue reading What I’ve Learnt From 10 Years OF M.E
