I have always been easily pleased. My favourite Christmas presents are always Christmas socks! I wouldn’t say I have expensive taste or like fancy food. Diamonds just don’t do it for me.
I think being this way stood me in good stead for ‘The M.E. Years’. Since being ill it has become even more important to smile about the little, simpler things in life. Illness has given me the opportunity to look at things a completely different way and appreciate them much more. A different perspective. This year, for perhaps the first time ever, I was aware of the leaves turning orange and red as Summer ended and Autumn began. Before, I never really took much notice of the changing seasons. It took only two weeks for the cherry tree across the road to change colour completely.
As I see things, I am going through a life changing experience. Not many people get to have one of those…
