Hi, I'm Emma, and I have been living with ME for the past eight years. I started my blog to help raise awareness of ME, by writing about how the illness has impacted on my life. I also share thoughts on how I'm learning to live well with it. Like many things when living with ME, blogging can be sporadic depending on my energy levels and/or other things that may have to take priority with my limited battery life!
I live in Saddleworth with my husband, our six year old son and our very friendly Cockapoo! I have a passion for photography, and if you follow me on social media, you will know I am rather obsessed with taking photos of our local canal! Prior to ME, I worked as a Medical Representative for a large nutrition company, and I was also a qualified Fitness Instructor / Personal Trainer. I loved to travel, exercise, socialise with friends and keep active.
In the first few years of the illness, I found it extremely hard to accept no longer being able to do these things. Despite the many challenges and difficulties of living with ME, I try my best to find joy in the little things and share my #joyin.. the seasons, and #mydailythankyou challenges across my social media and blog.
