In a previous blog I talked about turning the negative into positive. One of the positive things to come out of being ill is all the wonderful people I have met and the fantastic friends I have made through social networking sites.

I know many of us lose friends and family because of this dreadful illness but thank goodness there are others like us who suffer the same who provide invaluable help and support. It`s this friendship and kindness that has made all the difference to me.

I have expressed this kindness in one of my poems


The kindness of others
Who all suffer the same
Provides me with support
And helps to keep me sane! 

When I read your kind words
Tears well up in my eyes
Emotion overwhelms
Taking me by surprise 

Such a little kindness
I find goes a long way
And makes a difference
To a difficult day 

A few kind words and thoughts
I sure appreciate
And I thank you so much
My friends are truly great.
This kindness has been further extended and demonstrated since I`ve published my book of poems about M.E.
I`ve had some wonderful response, reviews and feedback. It has moved me greatly and brought tears to my eyes.
It happened again a few days ago when one of my friends did this review of my book by video.

Another friend wrote a lovely blog about me, M.E. and my poems.

Fortunately my husband is always on hand with the tissues!! 

So now I would like to thank all my friends who have helped and supported me in recent years. I would like to thank those who have bought my book and those who have left kind comments and messages . You make it all worth while.

You can buy my book on here or on again here

And don`t forget that if you like my poems to leave a review. 

Merci beaucoup.
