The Universe within ME
The Universe within ME is a beautifully written and powerful account of fifty years with M.E. by Amanda J. Charlton.
Amanda writes, "Every day is a challenge… I tilted my neck back slightly to rest my head on the back of the bench and soaked up the watery February sun. It seeped rapidly through my body, running down my arteries and veins like liquid mercury. I stood up and passed out. I remember the school calling my mother – an unheard-of occurrence. I remember my father coming to collect me. I remember I was 15 years old. I remember I never went back. Now it’s 2020 and that was 50 years ago. I was due to take my incredibly important exams, go into the sixth form and then to university, like my sister before me. A life just beginning ended that day."
