M.E. Awareness Day – 12th May 2012

Today is International M.E. Awareness Day, the biggest day during M.E. Awareness Week. I was hoping to write something really good and informative today, but my plans have been scuppered because I’m too ill. Yesterday Johan washed me and helped me into clean pyjamas, and afterwards I crashed and I still haven’t recovered (yes, I am very ill because I had a wash- M.E is like that).

Anyway, what I thought I’d do instead is have lots of links to blog posts and things that are useful and informative. This also has the advantage of me being able to ask Johan to actually do the linking part as I’m not feeling very well at all. (He has agreed to help with this). I wish I could do more, but it’s just sod’s law that my M.E. means I can’t 😛
