I read a really interesting post about success stories and what people had done/eaten/taken to get better. Success stories in our world feel a bit like spotting a unicorn or the Loch Ness monster. Exciting, awe inspiring but impossible. I've seen a few articles over the years (and had them...

I saw an episode of Sherlock the other day, the new ones with Benedict Cumberbach. The villain said that he wanted to talk to his daughter and co-workers but had set it up so that they received a drug and in an hour they would forget the entire situation. He could confess and feel the relief...

Well this week has not gone as planned! I expect most of you can relate to that. Sometimes I wonder what plain of reality my brain works on! I get these grand ideas in my head and scheme away for hours. Then reality bites me hard, right on the bottom, and I look back on my ideas and wonder what...

Ummm....... I nodded, slapped a smile on my face and stood up with much more enthusiasm than I felt (story of my life!). I was told to remove my trainers outside the room and lie down on the bed. There were small plastic L shaped pieces to indicate where your head and shoulders should sit. I...

Hi everyone, I just wanted to write something about an MRI scan I had today. Simply because there wasn't a great deal of info online about the little details and I'm a stickler for the details! A bit of background info - but feel free to skip ahead in the story. As well as having CFS, I was...

Having one of those days where you feel like you're being ignored, left out, cast off, held back or treated with disdain? Well, I'm pretty sure I've felt all of these at some point (and all at once at a few doctor appointments!). But, after giving myself a few hours to wallow in the...

Where did I put it? That word, that name, that place. Where did it go? I started as I meant to go on, and it disappeared straight off my tongue. I opened my mouth, to let my thought out, and ten words dissolved into none. My brain feels all fuzzy and grey, and none of my words want to stay...

I normally write a bit of poetry to express my current frame of mind. Today I'm feeling a bit different. In my little patch of the UK, the sun in shining and I've had a generally great day. It's one of those days where I feel content, like a happy cat stretched out and dozing in the sunshine...

That first sip of a cup of tea that trickles through your chest and tingles your toes. The sturdy, stable hands that deliver it, your friend, family, lover, lifeline. Their stable, sturdy hands in contrast to yours, frail, uncontrollable, strangers. A sturdy smile to match their hands...

Hope. Like the wing of a moth, it is beautiful but easily damaged. Sometimes it is hanging in our every word, others, it shines from within us for all the world to see. There are days, months, years where it seems lost, its phantom pain flickering in a dark unknown place within. A careless...

I didn’t choose this. I didn’t do anything wrong that made this happen to me. I didn’t want to faint in a shop when I was 16 and having a day out with my friends. I didn’t want to miss that great night out when everyone had an amazing time when I was 18. I didn’t want to be exhausted and...
