Ros is a fellow ME sufferer and has kindly written this about how she expresses her creativity which help her cope with the ME.
I have been writing poems for a while but in recent years have turned to writing about M.E. and people with other chronic illnesses .
I wanted to express how I and other feel. I wanted to increase awareness and understanding of how it affects our lives and at the same time raise funds for Invest in ME http://www.investinme.org/So I have written a book of poems which is called ‘My A-Z of M.E.: 50 poems about living with (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis)’It’s available from Amazon around the world in paperback and kindle version. Here’s the link for the UK http://www.amazon.co.uk/My–
I have a blog where I write around my poems and current events
I also have a face book page here
I like it when I have feed back from others who suffer the same and makes me feel that it’s all worthwhile. It can be emotionally difficult to read my poems, even for myself. Still I try to express true feelings and emotions, no matter how hard. This way I hopefully show the reality of living with a chronic long term illness like M.E.
Ill with M.E. since 2002
Now living in France
