Edites to add: I'm completely overwhelmed by the support. I don't know hkw to adequately reply. Love to all xxx Almost 4 years ago (may 2014) I made an awareness video about the illness I have, ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). It's about 10 minutes long. If you are interested it would mean a lot if people watched it. Very shortly after I made it I got worse. For a while I couldn't speak, couldn't type, couldn't feed myself, was paralysed most of every day and was in incredible pain (i couldn't say how long. 18 months at the lowest maybe. Very very slow improvements the last year/18 mths) I'm better than that now but I'm still very severe and completely bedbound. (Because people asked: I'm 36 now and I've been sick since I was 16. However it was mild enough in the beginning for me to complete highschool and begin doing a double degree (BA/Bsc), but I had to drop out after getting worse at 22 with most of 2 degrees but not 1). I will never be fully well but any improvement ia incredible. I feel so so lucky and grateful for the improvements I have made) I'm posting this not for pity but for awareness. The more people know about our illness the less ign9rance snd isolation we'll face. Hopefully people will also support our demands medical research and decent treatment by health and social services. There's a campaign with the tag #millionsmissing If you watch the video ignore th fundraising stuff at the end, it's out of date. I wasn't up to colouring it and it didn't seem necessary (please be careful about randomly googling this illness. There is a LOT of false information. I don't have the spoons to go into it but really, the dismissal of the biological reality by even many doctors is a scandal that will be viewed a travesty by history. maybe someday I'll be up to explaining)
