teary eyed reading and appreciating the sharing, sitting next to my son who has the same struggle

Me too Emma. I'm writing and reading for connection. I love hearing peoples personal stories, it makes me feel less alone.

A booze soaked Scottish Parkie podcast - YES PLEASE - so long as there's lot of swearing and dirty stories. And was this use of the word nuisance rather than nuance a brilliant piece of word play or a typo 'everyone’s take has a nuisance and subtlety that generates a different perspective' Whichever I loved it.

I find exactly the same - I'm left cold by scientific articles, even if they're giving really positive information. It's been the relationships with other people with M.E. and COPD that have kept me going. It must be working, I'm still (mostly) coping after 26 years....

Thanks Emma, have you really broken your thumb or was that just your fictional alter ego? πŸ€”

Hope you and yours are doing well, all things considered!

Connecting, loving, sharing, caring....these are life's joys! Life might not always be easy, but with joy in our life, it's still good enough. And it can be wonderful at times πŸ’—

(I'm being extra upbeat to counteract the sad mood l'm in today! πŸ˜†).

P.s. are you going to conference in Barcelona in July? 😘
