I’m Rachael and welcome to my blog, glad you can join me.
I have a number of chronic health issues. I have Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E. or CFS), Borderline Personality Disorder (with depression and anxiety), Asthma and Adrenal Insufficiency. I have spent the last decade or so just taking medication and trying my best to “just get on with it” – being not severe enough in any of these to have any meaningful support from the NHS. They are severe enough to have a significant detrimental impact on my daily life though.
My aim for this blog is to learn about all of my health issues, connect with people who have all or any of my health conditions (or those who have an interest) and to document my preparations to achieve my dream of walking to the summit of Pen Y Fan.
I hope you will join me on this journey, and hopefully we will have some fun and laughter on the way.
