I’m not going to do an intro today, this post will explain itself as you read on… So, lets get into it!

Tom has been inpatient for (approx.) 6 months now due to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, a debilitating condition that has left him bed ridden and paralysed in three limbs.
Tom is unable to eat, which means he is fed through a PICC line. (A tube that’s placed in the arm and leads to his heart.)
Despite this, he continues to support those around him and document his life story – giving inspiration to others with chronic illnesses, even those without.
I also suffer from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (among other conditions) and I know first hand how evil this condition can be…
So, Tom; you are an incredible human being.

Amy Lee Fisher
Amy suffers from several chronic illnesses, these being Gastroparesis, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Disorder, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis.
Amy is currently in hospital, awaiting an NJ tube placement as she isn’t able to get the nutrition that her body needs. She hasn’t been able to eat for around 3 weeks and is now incredibly weak and malnourished!
While in hospital Amy’s body has been testing her, for sure! A major MCAD attack alongside an anaphylaxis reaction – which then lead to needing the crash team.
Similar to Tom, Amy continues to support and inspire those around her with chronic illnesses, despite her ongoing health struggles.
Amy, you are so strong and I’m certain that you’ll get the nutrition you so desperately need… Just keep going and things will slowly begin falling into place.
