Joe — severe ME — Theology student — Apprentice writer

Blog details

Hi, I'm a severe/very severe ME sufferer.

Before ME got severe I was studying a graduate diploma in theology.

I like writing.

Mostly theological thoughts and contemplative exhortations.

I might also share some of my ME stories on here.
