So, two months just flew by. It's been fun establishing ourselves here at Gilston. The summer has been pretty good , at least by Fife standards, and we've got a lot done. The ME has been restrictive - I'm having to pace myself carefully, but I've got a lot done. I've worked on being able to graciously accept offers of help, even though internally I was snarling at the need and my injured pride. I've got rid of the inner snarl now, and life is easier all of a sudden.
I'm having a rather different mid-life crisis. I've been unwell for three years with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis - M.E. I've found it to be a Major Encumbrance. I've lost my job, we've sold our house and moved to somewhere rented, and recast a lot of plans. How will we cope? What will happen next?
58 years old, became unemployed in April 2009 because of ME after 31 years as a Social Worker.
I've been married for nearly 33 years to Susanneke, and we have two sons and a daughter, all now astoundingly grown up.
