Hope Found in M.E.

By Hope found in M.E.
Some lighthearted chat amid the midlife muddle living with a Chronic illness. Which in my case is M.E. (also known as MEcfs c.2004). I discuss a variety of topics which are published on a Tuesday or as a Thought for Friday, as MEcfs allows.

Hope is my middle name!

I started out as a blogger. You can find me at:

I'll aim to answer, it will take a couple of episodes. But I think it's a question worth taking time over to answer. As, like an onion, there are quite a few layers.
