It's been a little while since I last wrote a blog but other events and people have come into my life.
This blog and my poem is inspired by an event that I experienced some time ago. I've never forgotten it and how I felt at the time.
All my senses were totally overwhelmed.
I'll explain a little of how I came to find myself in such a situation.
Because of my M.E. and my sensitivity, I've chosen to live in a quiet and calm location in France. See the locations effect.
Most people with M.E. are sensitive to some degree to light, noise, odours, chemicals, food, medications and touch.
I had a reason to go back to the UK and perhaps underestimated how I would cope and what effect it would have on me.
When I was younger and healthy I lived and worked in a busy city. I was accustomed to all that came along with it. It was never a problem.
However when I returned to that environment I felt totally overwhelmed and unable to cope with the sensory overload.
I now know that I made the right decision in choosing to live in a better environment. Of course not everyone with M.E. has that opportunity.
Have you ever been in a similar situation?
How did you feel?
Until next time I'll be staying at home!
