Big, tired, poorly smiles :-)

I made it!

I’m not sure how or why I managed it but I did! After two years of mostly sensibleness and extremely hard work I had one evening off ignoring my brain and body. It was naughty and silly of me I know, but it was also wonderful! I managed a meal out and a cheeky J2O in a busy and noisy pub. I wore my new birthday dress and little heels. How very daring of me! I know I looked poorly and I didn’t manage with make-up or contact lenses but you can’t have it all can you?!

I officially have the best friends in the world. I am so, so lucky and thankful. They were on alert incase I needed to leave NOW, gave me such lovely, well thought out presents, made sure I had a seat where I wouldn’t get too hot or be bumped into by passers by, they cut up my food for me when I need help, walked infront of me when I went down stairs incase I fell…They are just perfect. They all make my M.E journey so much less horrendous.

There may be no blog for a few days while I get myself back on track with the daily grind and rehab. I have a hospital appointment tomorrow with the CFS clinic and the payback from my birthday week will no doubt keep me from writing coherent blog posts!

On a separate note, thank you so much to all of you for reading my blog. The feedback I have received is absolutely overwhelming. The viewing stats are incredible too! I can’t believe how well received my blog has been. I only started it to offload a little…My friends quote phrases from my blog when I speak to them and I have received messages from people I don’t know thanking me for what I am writing. I shall keep it up. I have so much more to say.
