    A Canadian Woman Living with Severe ME Describes Her Life and Choices.

    A profound piece and an education for many, Liisa has persevered to write this piece to raise attention to ME.

    After reading the piece, please 'Upvote' it while you're there.


    "Yes, I’ve learned a lot from my illness, but there comes a point where it starts to go backward and eats at your soul if too profound + too severe.

    I watch documentaries about assisted suicide, and those folks all do it because they don't want to go through what I’ve been through. But, I’d like to say, it’s ok for weeks or months. Know that. Don’t be afraid of losing control of your body or functionality, or of having people care for you when sensory issues are absent. You shift realities into a new one where all that is ok …

    It’s the years on end of no respite or death that get to me."
