Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – A Day In The Life Of Hailey Hudson

Interview Day in my life, CFS, BLOG
This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series A Day In My Life

Welcome to my first guest post in this new series where we will explore the impact of chronic illness and disability on our daily lives. Illness can have devastating effects not only on our own lives and bodies, but also on those closest to us.

Despite this, you might be surprised to find out just how resilient and courageous people with chronic conditions are. We weren't really given a choice in the matter, we have to quickly learn to adapt in spite of harsh conditions. I hope you will enjoy this series and perhaps even learn a few tricks on how you might improve your quality of life.

Who am I? it is important to reflect and decide who you are in life, your dreams and goals, your passion and purpose. But when you are diagnosed with a severe chronic illness it can become a bit blurry.

When you can no longer do the job or hobbies you used to do or think and learn and read the way you used to, it can seem like all those plans you had for your life are a distant memory, an impossibility...

The truth is that although things are very different now, it's still possible to find joy and meaning in every day and even discover or fulfil your purpose.

How You Can Help The Millions Missing Worldwide

Photo of thousands of empty shoes filling a town square, foreground text says ME Awareness, How you can help the Millions Missing

Although May 12 is ME Awareness Day, a global day of "Millions Missing" protests and demonstrations by people with ME, their carers, family and friends, many patients are too ill to leave their beds and would be lost and hopeless if not for the able bodied supporters who take their places at these rallies and make some noise for those of us too ill to do it ourselves.
