Following Sunday, this week is national M.E awareness week here in the UK, and as promised I will be sharing more posts with you in its honour! Unfortunately I had surgery yesterday so I'm feeling the effects of that quite badly so todays post is only a short one but it's full of lots of pictures, yay! This is just to put a perspective on things. People with M.E regularly hear all sorts of ludicrous things, such as:
'You don't look sick'
'It's all in your head'
'You are lucky it isn't serious'
'At least you get to be lazy and stay in bed and watch films all the time'
'Quit exaggerating, you just need to get out and do things'
'I get tired too, I must have M.E'
'You have pills, why are you still moaning'
Plus many other weird remarks. This is the way we humour ourselves in other peoples ignorance and when we just need a much needed chuckle to ourselves.
