M.E and me

So today is M.E AWARENESS DAY.

What is that I hear you say. It stands for myalgic encephalomyelitis. It’s not just chronic fatigue as many people think it is.

I have had this illness since 2014 and it literally zaps the life out of you and makes you not able to function including trying to communicate as you have no strength. My symptoms can vary, the most one that affects me is losing my voice for weeks at a time and brain fog when you know what you want to say but you just can’t muster up how to put what you want to say across.

I learn how to pace myself and do little bits and take a little break and if I’m having a big flare sometimes bed for a week is needed.

I’ll leave you with a few Pinterest finds

Invisible illnesses really do need to be more recognised all over the world.

Try to be a supportive person to those who need it whatever their illnesses are.
