As some of you probably noticed, I disappeared for a week. This was completely unintentional and unavoidable yet I still feel slightly guilty that I couldn't let you guys know first.
I don't really know how to tell you what happened to me so I'm going to spit it out - I was in hospital. Before you panic, I am okay(ish) now though still recovering. I had an infection that totally screwed with my M.E. and caused a lot of problems, thankfully I seem to have come out of the other end relatively unscathed. I won't lie and say it wasn't scary, because it was, but I had Chris and my family supporting me constantly which made it much more bearable.
Needless to say, having a week in hospital has made me realise just how bad my disability can get and I can't help but be grateful I don't have to live like that all the time. But it has also knocked my confidence in myself and in life a little, so please forgive any rambling that may follow in the next few weeks as I try and work out where I go from here.
I am hoping to continue posting as often as I can during the week but I'm hoping you'll all understand if I miss a day or two (or three) as my priority now is resting and trying to get back to the person I was before (or at least to a person I can live with being).
I hope your last week went better than mine, please share as I need some uplifting things to keep me going right now.
