Well, I passed another ME milestone this week. Alastair, my eldest son and some friends were going to Glasgow to see Bruce Springsteen. There was a ticket available for me. But, I knew I couldn't cope with a trip through to Glasgow and four or more hours in a crowded concert hall, so I had to let the chance pass.
I was talking to a friend with ME later, who told me that a similar experience was the thing that suddenly made his situation crystal clear to him. The Boss incident did the same for me.
ME - don't it make you feel like you're a rider on a downbound train?
