A Day in the Life of Bedrest

Doodle of a tray with a glass, plate and some food items

Relapses I often know how crummy (ie. Payback, Setback or Relapse written in order of likely duration) the MEcfs is becoming when I have vivid dreams involving rapidly rising water and blocked routes. No not blocked drains and not a dripping tap, or a glass of refreshing sparkling. I'm talking about floods. Perhaps that is … Continue reading A Day in the Life of Bedrest

MEcfs – My Brain – A Comedy

Marbles

My MEcfs Brain doesn't always cope well with questions, waiting, planning, changes and life in general. Does my brain function in a different way to other ME sufferers grey matter? I really don't know. But at times it can seem like a comedy double act! [1700 words approx]. I have to use all manner of … Continue reading MEcfs – My Brain – A Comedy
