ME/CFS: In Free Fall Through the Looking Glass

Here’s the point though. What happened was so far beyond being tired,
or lazy, or unmotivated, or living with a little pain or … or anything
we’d consider normal.

I was 36 years old, I’d been this person for over three decades, and I
know what is normal and what is way the heck from the outer limits. This
is true for all of us, and that’s why I’m writing this.

We are not a little run down. We are not a little weary. We are not
stressed or depressed. We are not this way because we get anxious
sometimes.

We know our bodies. We know ourselves. And we know when our lives have
been turned inside out as if some alien had come to reside within us
against our wills.
