We all understand the day in the life of 'Maddie' don't we ?

We all understand the day in the life of 'Maddie' don't we ?

ME/FMS comic strip compares a day in the life of two different people, for Maddie she is living with Chronic Illness and post exertional malaise versus Nancy who is healthy and living life !


Hope this helps explain fatigue to a family or friends !

  • That was really good thanks for posting. X

  • Very clear, I like it.

  • Thank you my friend that was exceedingly good and helps explain things simply.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

    Ken :)

  • Hay Mdaisy

    Gives the message load and clear, but unless you have the 'Maddie, problems, they won't apply it to you.

    Grrrrrr ! Think harder to cope with sometimes than the pain. fenbadger asked for experiences on this about two weeks ago, check his posts for it.

    might be worth re visiting in this context :)

  • Hey Mdaisy, wonderful info!

    I also follow Themighty.com. :) x

  • Very good, thanks for posting it.

  • Very useful. Sometimes its us not putting our side coherently that doesn't help too.

  • Hi ya,

    Yes it mainly concentrates on fatigue but explains this very well. It would be good if we could make one about Fibromyalgia including all the myriad of symptoms! :)

    Loved the bus picture the other day, by the way :)

    Emma :)

  • Thanks.

    Good idea

    Fairly local to you but you're too young to have seen it in service :)

  • When was it about as I might be older than I look ?!?! Tee hee :P

    The company closed in 1973 (I imagine upon nationalisation)

    They didn't go to Andover, but reached Stockbridge and Whitchurch.

    I went to school on this one :P

  • You're right wasn't born til 76' - it's an amazing bus in good condition.

    Do you know the owner? As it would look fantastic at events like Andover Motoring Festival that raises money for charity
