In 2014, I was a 39 year old woman working as a CEO in the arts and charity sector, when a meningitis-like illness which lasted only a few days, left me with severe ME and Fibromyalgia. I went from being energetic, creative and ambitious to being largely bedridden. My life was transformed.

Life under the heavy burden of chronic illness has been at once devastating, and a catalyst for personal development. This blog shares some of my journey: from coming to terms with change, balancing the contradictory aims of seeking out treatments while accepting life with disability, and trying to find something positive in the challenges that chronic illness brings.

    I found your blog through Twitter. I hope you are ok, as I see your blog has gone stale. Your post on keeping on going despite something being drastically wrong resonates with me. I have found Twitter to be a wonderful support, if you haven’t already done so, you should join. Take care.


  2. Thanks for joining me on Smorgasbord this week and your Retox post was very interesting and have shared. best wishes Sally
