For three years I was so severely affected by CFS that I couldn't even read, let alone hold a pen! Then one day last October I went out for a ride in my wheelchair on a clear fresh October day and as soon as I got back, I was so inspired and happy that I wrote my first poem practically ever! Since then, I have had what I can only call a miraculous outpouring of poetry which, though not all the time, seems to just flow out of me. I have written by now I think well over 50 poems on my experiences and feelings towards CFS. It has provided great therapy for me, and a release I would never otherwise have thought of. Incidentally, or perhaps not, my health has improved drastically over this past year too! I thought I'd just say to give it a try. You need never have read a poem in your life or even want to. But creativity can surprise you, as it did me, and bring greater health I believe.
