Hi, I’m Penny, but you can call me Hope if you prefer. That seems to happen a fair amount on twitter & I don’t mind at all. Thank you for visiting my blog page ~ Hope found in M.E.

I started blogging in 2016 and am sharing on life with ME/cfs, through the changes it brings, discovering hope, creativity and renewed faith…and how that helps sustain me. With a little bit about my life pre-ME/cfs, some of which was spent in Asia.

I have had ME/cfs – Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, since 2004, on the more severe end of the scale. I also have BTOS – Bilateral Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, & apparently am one in a million to have that joyous combination! That aside, I’m so pleased to have reached the point of writing.

You may be wondering why it’s taken me such a while to do this. It’s basically because of the effects ME/cfs has on my capacity. But I’m so glad to have joined the blogosphere & hope you enjoy my posts.

The images used in my blog, Facebook & Instagram pages are all taken by me. They are a part of the creativity I’m slowly developing, along with some other craft when I can manage, in my little oasis of surroundings. I plan to post about that too in the future.

If you’re new to my page, do take a read of my introductory blog post. It gives a little about my history with ME/cfs ~ย New beginningโ€ฆย .

I have recently added a more detailed account of my experience of ME/cfs. It’s located ย in the Main Menu, entitledย My story with ME/cfs, along with my recent blog post Whatโ€™s in a shoe?โ€ฆ #MillionsMissingย .

There’s also links below, to my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Pinterest pages. Please do visit and say hi.

I hope you find some encouragement here & enjoy it. Thanks again for popping by. Please do interact & leave a comment. It’s really good to hear from folk visiting the page. I hope you pop by again soon.

Hope – found in M.E.
