Publisher's synopsis[edit | edit source]

(This synopsis was provided by the publisher for promotional purposes. For book reviews, please see Links section below.)

At 23 I was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. I went from being a busy, social and active young lady to bedbound. Three years into this illness I have learnt a lot, and the one thing that keeps me going is staying positive.

I am sure any of you who have this condition can relate to brain fog moments... I think if we didn't laugh we would have to cry! I have chosen to laugh, and I want to share with you all of my funniest brain fog moments. After all, laughter is the best medicine!

25% of all royalties from this publication will be donated to Invest In ME, an Independent charity campaigning for biomedical research into the illness. I hope this book warms you inside, and i think it's pretty much guaranteed you will be able to relate to it!

myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.) - A disease often marked by neurological symptoms, but fatigue is sometimes a symptom as well. Some diagnostic criteria distinguish it from chronic fatigue syndrome, while other diagnostic criteria consider it to be a synonym for chronic fatigue syndrome. A defining characteristic of ME is post-exertional malaise (PEM), or post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion (PENE), which is a notable exacerbation of symptoms brought on by small exertions. PEM can last for days or weeks. Symptoms can include cognitive impairments, muscle pain (myalgia), trouble remaining upright (orthostatic intolerance), sleep abnormalities, and gastro-intestinal impairments, among others. An estimated 25% of those suffering from ME are housebound or bedbound. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies ME as a neurological disease.
