From The Cornerstone For Thoughts ! By Ev.
Dear Myalgic Encephalomyelitis,
Do you remember when you decided that I’d be one of your 250,000 victims? You probably don’t but I can remember the early days of my symptoms. It began in late 2015/ early 2016, I think, annoyingly however I put you down to a gluten allergy…all those cakes, pastas and pies I avoided because I thought it was the trigger for my symptoms. I remember, catching the flu/stomach bug and I don’t think made a proper recovery. I think, I rushed going back to the gym, work and Uni before fully recovering so you sat lingering in my system just lurking..Id go through spells of feeling constantly tired and spaced out. Sitting in seminars, not really knowing who I was and what was going on. I’d consume 100’s of starbursts to try and get through the seminars without falling asleep.
But for those who read my letter to you and don’t know who you are, let me paint you the scene of who/what Myalgic Encephalomyelitis is. It is a long term, chronic, fluctuating neurological condition which affects all the body systems but most commonly the nervous and immune system. You effect 17 million people around the world. Did you know that ?
