I am leading a double life.
Each morning I get up, my make up goes on and I leave the house to do the school run. I make small talk in the playground with friends. Go to coffee once a week with a group of mums. I smile, I am interested in their lives.
It’s important to me that I’m a good mum, friend, sister, daughter. My house is usually clean and tidy, dinner cooked, (all fresh and gluten free), the bills are paid, we have a decent car. From the outside it all looks good.
What people don’t always know is I have a secret.
My funny, bright, handsome teen is sick. This year he was diagnosed with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME)/chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) in addition to hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS) and most likely postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).
It’s a year since this condition really stole his world, and flipped mine upside down.
