For those of you who don’t know me, let me introduce myself. I’m Megan, welcome to my blog!

I’m passionate about the environment and engaging the community in positive actions, as well as spending time with my family and friends. I love cooking, yoga and walking when I have the energy.

I’ve recently been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome / chronic pain (which several doctors have suggested may be Fibromyalgia) and pelvic congestion syndrome due to varicose veins on my uterus. As a result of these conditions I’m constantly in pain and have very little energy. This has resulted in me being unable to work for the last 6 months (in a job I love doing combining community engagement and sustainability) and being practically housebound most of the time due to symptoms.

Unfortunately none of the conditions I’ve been diagnosed with have any straightforward cures, so I’m now on a journey of discovering who I am with these conditions. This will mean experimenting to discover ways of reducing the symptoms and engage in activities I love without making them worse. I am hoping that along this journey I will not only find ways to engage in the activities I already know I love but find other ways to express myself creatively that may lead to a fulfilling life living with these condition.

This blog will be a way for my family and friends who I don’t get to see (and who are interested) to follow my progress.

I also hope this will help others who are going through a similar experience to find some new techniques or activities that may help them on their journey.

And so, I invite you to join me on this journey and I hope we can all discover something that will help make our lives more meaningful.
