Hoorah for the Humble Tray

Cup of tea and a yoghurt

Following a pretty heavy week on social media and whilst also being conked out in bed. As a much needed diversion, I decided to post a lighthearted image on twitter as part of the very cheery #MyDailyThankYou from Emma of Not Just Tired. https://twitter.com/hopefoundinme/status/1451312801000083458?s=19 A response from lovely Caz of Invisibly Me got me thinking … Continue reading Hoorah for the Humble Tray

GET and CBT – My Awful Experience as an ME Sufferer

I have thought, with great hesitation and a lot of emotion, if it was time to give a little insight into my experience with a thing called GET - Graded Exercise Therapy and CBT - Cognitive Behavourial Therapy. It's hard to revisit. But with the advent of Long Covid and some recent debacle about a … Continue reading GET and CBT – My Awful Experience as an ME Sufferer

Still Campaigning for the Wood

A field landscape

For how much longer remains to be seen. The excavator has been busy at the back fence Just … Continue reading Being a Wildlife Activist When You Have a Chronic Illness

Exploring Screen Reader Apps

You may have read my previous post Ode to a Field, about locally endangered Skylarks. Once I had started to settle down emotionally I was able to look at the ongoing situation here in a more proactive way. But it hasn't been and isn't easy. To the point of my local Council asking me to … Continue reading Exploring Screen Reader Apps

Books from My Reading List

https://hopefoundinme.com/

This post began three years ago, as 'My Reading Choices for 2018'! Now into 2021, it is just a little bit overdue. Not the books, thankfully. I didn't borrow them from a library. Reading Capacity 2018 was, I'm delighted to say, a good reading year in my MEsphere. Compared to other folks reading capacity, it … Continue reading Books from My Reading List
