Pigeons and poodles

I have had a few bad days, but I think I am recovering *touches wood*. From those days I mean, not from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis altogether.
The question ‘what would you do if you were cured from M.E. tomorrow’ pops up on the internet, from time to time. I do not like this question, it haunts me on those days I struggle. Continue reading

Oh, oh, ohm

Every single day I am amazed that I am ill and that my life is limited. You might expect I am used to it by now. I have been ill for 25 percent of my life and I am not yet forty years old. Well, I have that same expectation. Continue reading
