    Nasim Marie Jafry - 'The State Of ME' which is a loosely autobiographical novel.

    She was nominated for the Scottish Asian Womans award this year, but had to pull out from the interview process due to ill health.

    Here are the celebrities:

    Laura Hillenbrand, Author
    Keith Jarrett, Musician

    Does writing articles count? I plan on writing an ebook/book in the future but just write articles now?

    "Cher was diagnosed with Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME)/chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) in 1991. ME/CFS is a severe illness that can lead to symptoms that affect the brain and gastrointestinal, immune, and cardiac systems."

    I was just reading on some celebrity (tabloid BS) website about people with chronic illnesses. I found this description of ME/CFS with Cher very interesting. They call it ME, they call it severe, and they say it is a multiple systems illness. This just from some crummy celebrity paparazzi website.

    Does this show an evolution of perception over the years?

    Hi Dr Patient,
    I've been diagnosed with ME/CFS for over 12 years, and have only been well enough to start writing novels again seriously within the past 2 years, although I've been able to manage a little research here and there along the way.
