With the departure this coming Fall of my youngest off to college, I am feeling some of the usual sadness of the so called “empty nester” but honestly, not so much. I am celebrating the culmination of this phase of my parenting and I am so proud of both of my kids and the mature young adults they have become. They have much potential and a solid foundation upon which to build their futures. I am most proud of the caring people they have become and their capacity to be part of the solution.
Most importantly, and mercifully for the readers, this blog is not intended to be about me. Although I am a writer and am quite capable of generating a stream of endless self-centered babble, my hope is that this space will house a conversation about CFS and its many aspects which affect our health and our lives.
There is much hard earned wisdom in our community and we should share it. No one has the market on THE secret to defeating CFS. It is at best a shadowy disease (more about that in my next blog) and a lot of what we actually know about it comes from those who have had it or those who are still struggling with it. We also are fortunate enough to have many health care providers, family and friends who know us well and who recognize that CFS is a real physical disease. They have wisdom to share as well.
So please consider becoming a part of the conversation by commenting, asking questions, suggesting topics or guest blogging. Think about joining the community by sending a short thumbnail about your CFS story with a bit of your acquired wisdom and attach a pic of yourself or an image which appeals to you. You can use the Contact Form or send an email to Martha at DefeatCFS dot net.
Look for a weekly posting on Tuesdays. And consider being part of the conversation.
Be Well Again,
