|Having M.E. is not something I talk about a lot. I've had it for 12 years now but in hindsight pushed through symptoms for many years before. That stubborn streak also made me slow on the uptake of how to live with it/recover but fingers crossed i'm getting there. Read the below recently in a Free From health cooking book and it really struck home in particular the adrenaline aspect.|
I never know how to act at gigs. I feel self-concious and odd. I can't let myself go, and I don't trust my sense of rythem, so I sort of half-frown and bob my head, and I feel it makes me look like I'm somewhere else, on a higher plain, observing it as a piece of art on a level far beyond everyone else. Holding a piece of paper empowers me, too. It means I don't have to commit. I'm not there as a fan, nor by accident. I'm there to Do Something, and For a Reason. I sometimes wish I could just hold a piece of paper throughout life in general.
And then I caught her eye.
