One tip I've found useful is taking pictures of things that have memories, but that I don't really need anymore. Therefore you keep the memory but not the item.

And talking about photos, digital photos are something I'm always trying to organize, when sometimes it is better to print out what you want and delete anything that isn't worth printing.

Do you drink chai teas/coffee? If so I'd love a video about them. Right now I'm loving Twining's 'Vanilla Chai'.

Congratulations, you should feel proud. I can so relate to how amazing it feels to actually do anything like a normal person, that it's easy to get excited and try to do more than possible, but sounds like you managed to control yourself. Fingers crossed this becomes something you can do more regularly, but always makes sure to pace yourself.

Reading this post almost made me cry (admittedly, I have been a little extra-emotional lately for no apparent reason). I'm so glad Blue Sunday was a success, and I'm glad you're proud of yourself - you should be.  I completely get what you mean about not aiming to be an inspiration, but just being yourself and showing yourself so honestly is the best inspiration you could ever offer.

One thing that is often recommended for those of us living with chronic disabilities such as M.E. is to keep an 'energy diary'. Basically this means staying aware of how much we are resting, and how much low/medium/high activ...

Do you have to have the book before you get there, or can you buy it at the store? Just asking in case it isn't delivered in time for MK.

+Tamara Epps I know WHSmith have stated that the books signed there must have been bought in a WHSmith (either on the day or beforehand) but Waterstone's haven't stated this so I think you can bring your own copy, but you can definitely buy it on the day in store and get it signed there and then so that's probably the easiest options! :) (I hope that makes sense! The MK signing is a Waterstones!) xx

I can so relate to this. I never use the T word either, at least not when referring to my symptoms. If I actually feel tired and want (and can) go to bed, I count that as an excessively good day. The rest of the time I am exhausted, knackered, zombified. I love your explanation of so exhausted muscles won't physically work, that you feel sick, as this is exactly how I feel most of the time. Gentle hugs and hope you are as well as possible.
I haven't used the word tired to describe how I'm feeling for several years now. I quickly realised that what I was feeling was not tiredness at all. Tiredness, as I had known it for twenty years, was something that everyone ...

Thanks for sharing your goals Clare, though I'm sorry you've had a setback and need to readjust them. Just reading this post shows how strong you are, and how you'll always keep fighting to get what you want in life (such as a degree), and reminds me I can be like that too.
There comes a time after a virus, during a setback, that I have to readjust my goals. What was realistic a few weeks ago is no longer so. This isn't an easy process to go through. It hurts to have to go back to the basics, th...

Great idea. I got a gingerbread house kit (minus ingredients) for Christmas as it's on my bucket list too. I was going to wait for Christmas, but I think trying it when I'm not stressed about presents, etc, might be a better idea - thanks.
So this week I ticked another thing off my bucket list of things to do this summer. I built a gingerbread house! I got a kit to do it at Christmas but because I was still studying I couldn't actually make it at the time. Six ...

I'm glad it's given you an idea of doing it before Christmas. You'll have to let me know how yours goes!

First of all, don't ever feel guilty/embarrassed/etc to share ways in which we can support you, financial or otherwise. Own you and your work.

For those of you who aren't Doctor Who fans - this post isn't really about Doctor Who, though the video above prompted this post and is a good example of my points. As I was watching all the different Doctor Who opening credi...

Maybe history will show everyone of this period with their heads bowed, tapping away at small handheld devices in stead of just organically communicating with the universal net by using their implanted telepathic relays.

Story
Introduction
I'm 26 and only beginning to find myself. I am many things including a crafter, a book enthusiast, a writer and a dreamer but I've spent too long hiding behind these titles; now I am looking for the girl behind the labels.  I am searching for meaning and connection - I love getting to know people and being nosey about their lives - though for now I have to limit this from behind a screen as I suffer from M.E. - thank the gods for the internet!

I blog about all of these things and more at Empty Thoughts, Rewritten (if that's how you found me, please stop and say hi, and if even if you didn't, say hi anyway!).
