This article is very interesting and highlights that M.E/CFS isn’t just ‘feeling a bit tired all the time’. It also shows there is light at the end of the tunnel for some sufferers. As we know some of us do recover from the illness, some have periods of remission then flare ups, some have it all the time but to varying degrees and some of us have it full on, unrelenting and constant.
I fall into the third category, but when I have ‘lighter’ M.E periods my other illnesses pick up the slack, which my neurologist says is typical of those of us who have other integrated illnesses such as Fibromyalgia, IBS etc..

Yep that’s the big fat cosmic joke!
If you do one thing today take a few minutes out of your day to educate yourself about Fibromyalgia &/or M.E/CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and, if you get the chance, share what you’ve learned with a friend, family member or post a link on your blog/Facebook/website.
Are there any openings in Dr Tinycat’s surgery? Bet he could do a better job than some of the doctors I’ve seen ;)
If you do one thing for me this week (it its my birthday Saturday after all) please read this article!
M.E is so misunderstood, not only by the general public but by many medical professionals too.

My other half has the Man Flu.
Welcome to my world!
When people get ill I get perverse pleasure from them feeling like I do everyday of my life, just for a short time, but I am always glad when they get better as I wouldn’t wish my existence on anyone full time.
What if you’re embarrassed or in denial about your chronic illness? I receive this question all the time. What do you do when you’re embarrassed by your body’s ailments? What do you do?
Chronic illness brings about new insecurities that healthy individuals don’t have to battle, new…
