I just wanted to briefly update this month's challenge. I have dropped out. I couldn't keep up! I am impressed that I stuck to it for so long, considering my level of health and the associated cognitive dysfunction that is associated at the moment.
I mean, what was I thinking?!?
The truth is I want to fight stigma and neglect the hardest I can, I want justice and I want my government to recognize the gaps in the health care system, the huge black hole that patients with myalgic encephalomyelitis have been in for over 30 years now. But it's a big task for one person, and the hill is quite steep. And doing advocacy is impeding on my health.
So with this, I raise the white flag. Beat but not defeated.
