I was diagnosed with ME/CFS in 2014 following a crazy few years of sickness, stress and disbelief.
One of the hardest things for me when I was diagnosed was the online negativity towards chronic illness. Every blog or group that I turned to seemed to focus on the negative, making it feel as though I’d fallen into some dark hole I would never escape.
THIS. IS. NOT. TRUE.
I want to tell you a little secret… Recovery IS possible.
For me, recovery is an ongoing battle. Just a few years ago I was mostly bed bound, with no idea what was wrong with me – let alone what I could do about it.
I am now a university graduate working full time in a field that I love. I’m by no means “back to normal” and I’m not sure I ever will be, but I AM recovering. It’s not easy and it may be slow, but it is possible.
If there is anything I can write about that you’d love to hear you can contact me using the contact tab at the top of this page.
