Radio Scotland contacted me and invited me to take part in a half hour documentary on my 20 years of living with ME. Previously I'd have agreed on the spot, but this time I was unsure, all because I am still having Mickel Therapy sessions and finding them of benefit. In the world of ME politics, this is a very strange place to be. The mind/body therapies are a minority subset and those in the mainstream can't see how they could possibly help an illness as real and severe as ME. I know, oh yes indeed, because I used to be in that mainstream, flying the flag. No one is a surprised as I am.
Anyway, I agreed to do the programme, focusing on my longer term experiences and will record further interviews today. It's amazing how articulation and grammar try to jump out the window as soon as someone points a spongey microphone at your chin. There's a lot to cover as twenty years is a fair hike. The programme won't air till sometime in June and it'll be online too, so I'll post details when I have them.
