Popping back in for a quick update:

Hello folks, I'm not on here much, but still thinking the Powerswitch way..... As I think I described a couple of months ago I now have ME which has rather cramped my style... Anyway today is ME Awareness Day, so I really hope you don't mind me sharing a link to a blog post I wrote about How ME Affe...

Love it Chris - great clip! A local club ran some queen rearing sessions that I attended - fascinating. Sadly our bees have not faired well. We went into last winter with 3 hives, and had 2 by spring. One got completely confused and despite re-queening attempts ended up with laying workers.... The l...

Now 470 signatures! Thanks all who helped. :)


Interesting about the Addisons's - Although I don't think my levels were worryingly low. There are so many things that can be interconnected though! I'm going to ask loads of questions at my next hosp app!

Great rant Mallow! :D Yup I agree.... although my doctor has actually been incredibly understanding and helpful. However a friend - who should know me better - has already told me off for not "pushing on through the pain"! She has health issues herself and does push herself too far (a bit ...

Quick bump in case any of you missed this and would like to sign the petition: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/37117 "Advisors to the government on ME (commonly referred to as CFS) should be ME experts, not psychiatrists" Apparently Obama has promised more help to CFS sufferers i...

Thank you for all these messages of support... it helps. Up until now very few people knew I was off long term, now it's filtering out to friends further afield. Most reactions are very supportive. I'll think about the oesteopathy, although I already see a chiropractor anyway. Some of the most recen...

Thank you SS...

I am working on diet, pacing and vitamin and mineral supplements at the mo. But only just managing to stay in a holding pattern...

I'm trying to take a "zen" type attitude to it... but sometimes that is tough... REally not looking forward to kids going back to school...

Cheers! There are a load of misconceptions about this illness out there. Many of them perpetrated by the psychiatrists who pushed in and claimed ME as a psychiatric condition. They where supposed to be helping..... but instead blocked real research into the physiology of the illness. Just this morni...

Keela, this can be a long illness, I think. I am completely non-expert in this illness, but know that the young person suffered for 2-3 years I believe. I am sorry to tell you that, but I believe in being honest. One benefit of being on here a load over the years has meant that I can cope with a do...

Re: All in the mind? Please help!

Will do Keela. The reason the government are wrong in their sole use of psychiatrists is because of the complicated nature of this illness in conjunction with budget issues. Indeed! And apparently there are now "hidden" documents being uncovered that demonstrate just that motive! My suspi...

Thanks Snow... My story is that I had a series of viral infections last year, and also some abdominal troubles - first thought to be kidney stones and then later gynae problems. So although I kept working I was not quite at full power. I then had an op on 1st March to check out the gynae problems (a...
