Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    I just saw a thread named "The BPS youthtube channel" (which is really youtube).

    Instead of seeing photo.jpg I might see photo.pig

    This kind of thing has been happening occasionally for months, but never before. I don't feel particularly tired or confused when it happens. It's not really dyslexia, I don't see swimming or garbled text. When I realize I'd read it wrong and then look again in a more focused fashion, I can instantly see it correctly.

    Is this something known?

    I still have it but not as bad as it was. When I was worse I had times I could read a word many times and still have it wrong.

    @Sherlock - Yes! I can't tell you how many mistakes I've made in transposing phone numbers, appointment times, etc. I have to check myself repeatedly - and even then I make mistakes. Prior to illness, that didn't happen.

    When people go into remission, they must feel like super heroes with superior brain power (not to mention strength!). I think I'll start making a cape. You know, just in case! ;)

    Yes, I get it a lot. About six months ago though, I noticed something quite different and that is I lost word recognition of the word 'bear - as in bear a load' it still looks to me only as 'bear - as in the animal.' It bothered me for months, hopefully I will get the recognition back again.

    Same here. Only started when I became ill. Also had trouble with misspelling written words due to mixing letters around.

    For me, this problem has improved a great deal since the early days of illness. Still happens, but nowhere near as frequently.
