I was a fast walker too SOC lol I realize now the energy that I must of burned, doing that ! I have a ME friend whom I meet for a coffee and chat when we are both up to it. So funny how slowly we walk together. She has a sense of humor too, so some light relief amidst the hard slog. I will never forget when I first collapsed with ME. I was deathly sick. I shut off one of the bedrooms, closed the door and didn't go in there for 3 months. When I feebly did open it, there were moths in the room, some big. It was shocking. Had the pepper smell of dust too. It's a whole different world when you are sick. 4 cats SOC ! that's lots of fluff. For me it's birdseed everywhere, budgies, they flick it everywhere !
