ME/CFS ( myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome ) is a highly misunderstood condition that is characterized by a range of neurological, endocrine, central nervous system, and immune system disruptions, often (but not always) accompanied by profound fatigue, pain, tenderness, cognitive dysfunction and loss of muscle power following physical or mental activity. Myalgic encephalomyelitis is classified as a neurological disorder by the World Health Organization (International Classification of Disease 10: G93.3). The cardinal symptom of ME /CFS is post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion, a period of unwellness similar to the feeling experienced before a viral infection sets in.
Nearly three years ago, I was a teenager with a handful of diagnosed chronic illnesses, with a couple more ‘yet to be confirmed’. I had few people to talk to and needed to find a way to deal with my day-to-day problems because biting back every thought was not working out. Little has changed. Sure, I am no longer a teenager, I have been officially diagnosed with more illnesses, but the problem still remains: I am a very sick person with a support system that cannot manage the weight of this burden. I have spent the past hour or so looking through my old entries. So much is still relevent to my life - I still struggle, I still have questions, I still work my life around my symptoms.

Kolb & Wishaw (1990) have identified eight principle symptoms of temporal lobe damage: 1) disturbance of auditory sensation and perception, 2) disturbance of selective attention of auditory and visual input, 3) disorders of visual perception, 4) impaired organization and categorization of verbal material, 5) disturbance of language comprehension, 6) impaired long-term memory, 7) altered personality and affective behavior, 8) altered sexual behavior. Selective attention to visual or auditory input is common with damage to the temporal lobes (Milner, 1968). Left side lesions result in decreased recall of verbal and visual content, including speech perception. Right side lesions result in decreased recognition of tonal sequences and many musical abilities.
