Hi I’m Daniel. I lived with M.E. throughout my adolescence for seven years in the 90s, missing most of my secondary education before going on to live a ‘normal life’ (other than my body rejecting high energy exercise!).
I’m a qualified social worker, having worked in fostering and children’s disability services for ten years before I became ill again in January 2018.
I live with my wife and two children in the farmhouse where I grew up in Northumberland and can go for weeks without experiencing civilisation! We have a dog called Hugo and a cat called Billy. I write reflectively about life with M.E. and enjoy reading, photography and writing poetry.
