I have to add sometimes happiness is not as near the surface as I would like, but I guess that’s part of life and the challenge of CFS/ME.
24 August 2007. Chronically happy.
Despite feeling desperately tired, exhausted and ill from CFS/ME. Depsite a lingering viral infection. Despite tears of frustration and confusion earlier in the day. Despite having been stuck in bed and only getting washed and dressed late afternoon (just a short while before I took this picture). Depsite not being able to draw or do much art in the last few weeks. Despite not being able to work, go out, do anything physical for longer than a few minutes. Despite a bad IBS attack yesterday. Despite sleep distruption. Despite having a long list of things I want and need to do that I just can’t do.
Somehow, somewhere, deep in my core – I’m still happy.
