It's hard to believe that it is a month since I last posted something on my blog. Holidaying in Italy and the aftermath of holidaying in Italy, combined with M.E. (or C.F.S. as it is sometimes known) are my reasons. I have had this illness for 14 years. In order to manage it, I have to pace myself very, very carefully and not become over tired. Holidays ruin this. My enthusiasm to see everything gets the better of me and then I suffer later on with awful 'fluey symptons, exhaustion and aches. However it was worth it. Holidays are holidays, a break from the normal routine of life. And I have some lovely memories to treasure.
