About

Before autumn 2013 I was an average 24 year old university graduate, with a work hard play hard attitude. A great love of travelling, baking, volunteering and generally socialising with friends.

In the fall of 2013 I started to experience a variety of symptoms that included extreme fatigue, which later got diagnosed as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome commonly known as  ME/CFS, a condition that has no cure.

As part of my recovery  process, I went to a nutritionist who then diagnosed me with a gluten allergy.

I am no way near the end of my recovery from ME/CFS , and still have a long way to go but having started back to work on a phased return and am able to socialise with friends again, so things are looking up.

I really wanted to start this blog, as a bit of a diary and to share my recovery process from ME/CFS with others including what has and hasn’t worked for me, in particular my positive experience with the NHS specialist clinic here in Bristol as I know a lot of sufferers don’t have access to these types of services else where.

As well as practical advise on living a gluten free diet without feeling like you are missing out, including reviews for restaurants as well as loads of yummy recipes .

  1. I have a similar story to you! I was diagnosed with ME/CFS in 2009 and I went to a nutritionist who diagnosed me with a wheat allergy. After being housebound for 3 years and radically changing my diet, I am now fully recovered! You can read the full story here http://wp.me/p4x2w3-H It’s so nice to discover someone else with ME/CFS! I wish you well on your journey to recovery!
