Today I am not an M.E. sufferer. I am just a girl looking out to sea. I am just a girl watching the people walk by and wondering what their story is. I am just a girl squinting at the sun and smiling as it warms my aching body.

Today I am not an M.E. sufferer. I am just a daughter who went with her parents to sit on the beach. I am just a girl who felt the sand between her toes. I am just a girl who was as delighted to be paddling in the sea as the young children with their buckets and spades were. 
Today I am not an M.E. sufferer. I am just the young woman sitting in the window reading a book. I am just the young woman curled up on the bench drinking coffee when it really isn’t warm enough to still be outside. I am just the young woman who people might say is so lucky to be staying in that yellow house up there on that cliff. 
Today I am not an M.E. sufferer. I am just the delighted friend writing the Congratulations card to my friend who has just got engaged. I am just the delighted friend sending a text message to my friend who is getting a mortgage so her boyfriend. 
Today I am not an M.E. sufferer. I am just Anna who loves nothing more than to be by the sea. I am just Anna who loves the feeling of being here right now. I am just Anna who loves this feeling of contentment despite knowing that it won’t last forever. 
Today I am not an M.E. sufferer. Today I am just happy.
