By Jenny in Scope.
Hi, my name is Jenny and I’m 24 years old. I’ve had Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E) for 5 years but have been experiencing chronic pain and fatigue caused by multiple health problems from the age of 16. One of my hobbies is writing my blog: This thing they called recovery. The aim is to help facilitate more open and honest conversation about life with chronic illness and how it affects our lives as well as our bodies.
M.E is a cruel, debilitating and isolating illness that I wouldn’t wish on anyone. However, if I could go back and ensure it never happened to me, I don’t think I would. I’ve learned so much about myself and I am now a more compassionate, understanding and appreciative person. That doesn’t mean it’s easy or that it doesn’t get to me, I think it’s so important that people know that.
