M.E. myself and I is a year old! Happy Birthday Blog!
For someone who doesn't do very much I seem to have an awful lot to say seeing as we've managed 12 months and over 140 posts.
If I didn't have M.E. I'm really not sure I'd read a blog like mine so a special thank you to all those who don't have experience of M.E. and yet still take the time to read and hopefully try to gain some understanding. Thank you to those who use up their very precious 'spoons' to read and comment and share each post I publish. Thank you to the parents and siblings and friends of other sufferers who have joined me along the way. Thank you to my own family and friends who have stuck with it this past year. I hope it hasn't been a waste of your time and I hope M.E. myself and I has helped in some way, however small.

Blog-wise I suppose I'm up against it, what with beauty and lifestyle blogs being the blogs of choice. Everyone seems to have a blog these days and many bloggers are after fame and followers but that's not why I started a blog. I should have picked a much chirpier subject if that was my goal!
Yet despite not being a 'mainstream' topic, we have reached well over 20,000 views. That is ridiculous for a blog about M.E! Posts are shared on Facebook and twitter by people I have never met and have never spoken to. Obviously not everyone who views the blog page will read each post all the way through, but M.E. myself and I has a worldwide audience and I can't quite believe it! That was something I had never even thought about! This was honestly just meant to help my nearest and dearest to understand and it has become something much bigger. I never imagined that it would be so well received and read by so many. Thank you all for being so nice!

So I will carry on with M.E. myself and I because there is still, somehow, much to say.
And now, instead of celebrating I am off to the doctors this afternoon with a list of lovely new symptoms as long as my arm. Yay.
