What is M.E.?

What is M.E.?

Officially, M.E. stands for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis though most areas now refer to it as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).  It’s a condition not an infection, as despite recent findings about a retrovirus, it’s now understood that it can’t be passed on,  person to person.  M.E. sufferers were caught for ages, in the middle of a war...

What’s the purpose of my blog…..?

I’d like to explain why I’ve created this website and what it’s all about. I no longer have M.E. (also known as Chronic Fatigue) and as part of re-inventing myself entirely, I moved last year to live in Italy on an olive tree farm, up a mountain in Liguria.  This  explains the photo which is...

M.E. and Depression

M.E. and Depression

Depression is a huge topic in itself and here I am only going to write its relevance with M.E. as I see it.  Of course I do acknowledge the importance of endorphins through such activities as exercise, meditation, sex and laughing.  I also know how my body and mind became depressed when it was out...
