My Honest Experience of Depression and CFS

  For a while now, I really didn’t want to go anywhere near this post, even though I knew you might benefit from it.

{FREEBIE} The CFS Fear Manifesto

{FREEBIE} The CFS Fear Manifesto

  This CFS Fear Manifesto is something that’s been in the works for a while now. To be honest, the timing’s never really felt right until now, and I was so grateful for how well this manifesto was received that I thought it was high time to release it out into the world. Stick it on […read more]

Why You Should Never ‘Own’ Your Illness

  For some reason recently, I found myself thinking about (and being absolutely baffled by! All of the times I went to the doctor while I was ill.

Easy Ways to Get Nutrients into your Diet

Easy Ways to Get Nutrients into your Diet

First, let’s start with a confession…well, it’s not really a confession. The thing is, I’m not a great cook- never have been.

Relationships and CFS - Part Two

Relationships and CFS – Part Two

  Click here to read part one in this relationships series. It’s very easy to fall into the trap of thinking, “What the point of a relationship? Who would want to be with me?
