Mini-roll

M.E. Life, politics and social angst Not much time and/or energy? Go straight to latest entry here. Each entry is no more than 2 mins to read. What is a mini-roll? Inspired by the UK "mini" Budget, I'm starting a series of "mini" blog posts about living with M.E. The difference will be that my… Continue reading Mini-roll

Dear M.E. Ally

It's about Time Dear M.E. Ally This blog post is for you, and it's about Time. Time as something finite, something precious and something unequally distributed amongst us, especially pwME. (The abbreviation pwME is a shorthand for people with M.E. used on socials which I will be using here). Settle in as it’s long and… Continue reading Dear M.E. Ally

So close 

We have moved today from one amazing city to another. My favourite city in fact.  Hamburg.  This city has everything. Great cafes and bars, a beautiful lake spotted with places to buy delicious German food and Alsterwasser (Hamburg's version of Shandy), striking docks and beach clubs. Yes beach clubs, with sand, and an incredibly chilled… Continue reading So close

It also occured to me that since starting this new life I haven't given… Continue reading Crystallising down-time

A date with Venus

I am overflowing with the excitement of possibilities today. Full on babbling brook. A quick look at my chart and I can see a key couple of planets are actively encouraging my outpouring. Transit Venus is almost exactly conjunct my natal Mars, my chart ruler, and their creative collaboration is well and truly stoking the… Continue reading A date with Venus

Still learning

Looks like I needn't have worried about temptation today. My body had other plans. Be still day. This used to be what I would call one of my M.E "bad" days. I wake up feeling like I've had no sleep or rather reverse sleep. That is, every minute asleep has drained me further. Sometimes a… Continue reading Still learning
