ME Awareness Day

Yesterday (May 12th) was ME awareness day. The regular readers among you will know that one of the conditions I suffer from is ME (also known as CFS), and I’m passionate about exposing what it is really like to live with that condition. On that note, one of my new projects while I’ve been going through a very bad patch of health lately (told you I end up with loads) has been to set up a new a blog about my life. It’s much more personal than this blog, because if it wasn’t  then I wouldn’t be telling the truth. It won’t consist of post after post of whining, I’m just writing about my life and in that (hopefully) it will become obvious to the reader, the way in which my chronic condition affects my life. I really hope you’ll check it out and read it as loyally as you do this blog. I’ve named it Chronically Katie, and there are currently three blog posts for you to have a gander at to get the flavour for the blog, as well as two pages explaining more about myself and why I decided to start the blog. Please feel free to share a link and help me get the word out and give some constructive feedback.

Happy Sunday!


ME story

At the beginning of this academic year I found out that the ME charity, Action for M.E. were looking for patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS, sometimes referred to as M.E.) and Fibromyalgia to contribute to a section of their website they were developing students. I decided to share my story with the CFS community, you can find my article here. I encourage you to have a look at all their website to find out more the condition, especially if you have a family or friend who is a sufferer.
