How My Life Has Changed Since I Developed ME/CFS

Life Changing Event


By Lisa Alioto in The Mighty.


When I was me…

I always greeted you with a smile. I may have tried to say something funny to put a smile on your face and I was always excited about whatever plans we had for the day.

When I was me…

I worked out. Sweaty, hardcore workouts that made you feel like you were going to collapse but brought a huge sense of success when completed.

When I was me…

I had a ton of friends. We hiked, went out, had drinks, danced and we closed the bar down on occasion.

When I was me…

I shopped for fun new clothes and new, but not needed, boots. And oh so many scented candles!

When I was me…

I sought out crazy adventures. Ones that scared me a little and thrilled me a lot.
