Chronicling my descent into and rise out of chronic illness
Saturday, 23 March 2013
The nightmare continues....
The road back to recovery was never going to be easy and smooth, right? And of course it hasn't been. The week just gone is evidence of that. All of the old symptoms were back (and linger still) and I made it to work only one day out of five. It was a painful and unnecessary reminder that ME is still a big part of my life and that there is still a long way to go.
I was diagnosed with ME in March 2010 and, since then, it has dominated and blighted every aspect of my life; to such an extent that I have only very recently returned to work after having been made unemployed because of it. Recent signs of an improvement in my health, which I had previously believed to be impossible, have finally given me hope that I may yet be able to fully recover. I remain determined to beat this illness - it's just taking longer than I had anticipated - and will use this blog, as well as Twitter, to keep track of what happens next.
