About Me

My photo
I'm 57 and had M.E/CFS symptoms for as long as I can remember. Diagnosed 1988, as was my daughter, then aged just barely 11. Crafting has kept me sane through these many years and I've tried my hand at lots of things. Currently I'm cardmaking and crocheting,but also enjoy, drawing, writing poems, scrapbooking, making jewellery, fimo, needle felting, dressmaking...I could make a long list. As a dedicated Jehovah's Witness I also, naturally, have a keen interest in the Bible.

Life is a buffet

It really is, when you consider all the things we have to get done in a day from just getting out of bed to taking a holiday. Our lives are made up of lots of little events.

Now most people can go up to the buffet table and help themselves to whatever they want...and as much of it as they can fit on their plate. They can even quite often go up for second and third helpings.

For those of us with M.E....well we have to treat life as if we are on a diet. We go up to the buffet table and look carefully to see what we are allowed today - and it's going to depend on how much we have had already..we can't go over our daily/weekly allowances now can we. 

Depending on the level we are at, we may in fact only be able to have the tiny little nibbles that are on the table.....and a very few of them at that. However, a tiny nibble of a few things is far preferable to a huge plate of one thing that will make you, first of all, regret breaking 'your diet' and perhaps have the long reaching effects of making you feel ill for weeks or months.
