    Persuasion tell your son he is a little wizard and with a keen esthetic eye, although I'm convinced that good taste must run in your family ;).

    I know this much

    ME has taught me to respect all human actions/reactions
    regardless of my own actions/reactions
    I believe there are legitimate causes lying within all human behaviors
    for every action/cause there must be a reaction/cause

    Thought people might be interested in new post up on http://visitingmrssmith.com/ looking at the psychologising of physical illness. Do take a look and tell us what you think.

    If I ask for advice then it's fine, but I don't want unsolicited advice or comments that are completely irrelevant to the conversation. If someone asks a question about say Milk, someone commenting on juicing makes no sense.

    Many of us have very serious cognitive issues so reading anything extra can just be too much for the brain... and the energy it takes to read is used up unnecessarily.

    Which makes me wonder:

    How do many of the members here, type practically a thesis in every post?


    It was challenging for me just to type this reply,Lol......

    @Tired of being sick I think those people have CFS and not ME. That's the difference between us and I feel because they don't suffer like we do they aren't inclined to dumb things down.

    If I write anything over a few sentences, I write it offline over the course of several hours sometimes. Then I copy and paste.

    I have to re-read and re-work things several times just to get them readable.

    I'm not trying to compete with you. Simply pointing out that things are not always what they seem.

    But your writing "looks so good". Sound familiar?

    Sorry I didn't mean to seem confrontational. I just meant that even with all the work you do, I still can't read it, and if I could, I wouldn't remember it.

    I think that is the difference between PWCFS and PWME.

    I undertand. I can read the same thread 2 days in a row and have no recollection of ever having seen it before.

    And I'm not even gonna stir the CFS vs ME debate lol. Extremely sick people in both camps.

    Chronic illness isn't our friend. See it as an enemy that we are able to subdue. Sometimes. Posted about this and what the art of battle in Taoism says about this on http://visitingmrssmith.com
