I'm an ME survivor (so far anyway), 27 years and counting. I'm - at the time of writing - mostly housebound. This restricts me to mostly sedentary pastimes - reading, blogging, my website www.ronsrealm.me.uk and cooking, when I can. I also have severe COPD, the precursors of which - asthma and bronchiectasis - resulted from simultaneous whooping cough and measles at age 2, either one of which was capable of trashing my lungs. Together, I was seriously screwed, When I'm able to get out my primary interests are birding and photography (film and digi), as they fit my current abilities. There used to be others, like camping and fishing, but for now they're out of reach. I used to write a magazine column, about computer issues, for people with ME (CFS if you're American), but now I put all my effort into my website. I also operate an email advice service for people with ME and computer problems. I've been running this for three years and have only been stumped once. Thanks, Steph!
