Back home in Wales, having just finished an interview with the ME association about my journey of recovery from ME/CFS featured today in the Daily Mail. It’s been a little while since I last spoke about it in depth, and I always find it tough reliving those moments. I feel overwhelmed with what could have been, how my life could have looked very different if it weren’t for those individuals who helped me. I see it as a low point in my life.... However during the interview on...e thing became clear, it may have been a low point at the time, but now a few years later it’s made me a stronger, healthier, more passionate, more appreciative of every moment I get on stage, and every minute with my little daughter and family. If this helps someone realise there is hope of recovery, then it’s all worth it. Cx
