There’s No Place Like Home
and welcome to my little corner of the world, or to be more precise, my little corner of the World Wide Web. I am Samantha McInnes (but please call me Sam) and in the summer of 2010 I was diagnosed as having Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E) also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (C.F.S) and Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (P.V.F.S).
The Gospel According to Sam is my honest and extremly funny blog about living with this misunderstood illness. After going a trip from Glasgow to Manchester and subsequently having my legs pack in, I decided to share my story about the reality of living with M.E in my own out of the box way to educate those who know nothing about it, help fellow sufferers feel not so alone in the world and also to stop myself from going insane due to all the episodes of Smallville and The West Wing that I had been watching ( I seriously considered running in the next presidential election until I realised I wasn’t American or at all suitable to run a country).
I will update my blog every couple of weeks with my latest trials and tribulations. In between these times feel free to leave a comment on the Have Your Say section of the site. You can also drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Facebook or Twitter by clicking on the links above.
The Sam and M.E Blog also run a local support group for those who live in Moodiesburn, Muirhead, Cumbernauld and surrounding areas. We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 7pm in the Pivot Centre in Moodieseburn. All are welcome. Please check out the Sam and M.E Meetup Site for more information.
If you know nothing about M.E please check out our All About M.E section to find out
