These pages are written by me, Caroline, a full-time working mum to a teenager and wife of an Iranian-born British subject. Life is interesting and challenging at times trying to cope with a young adult who knows his own mind and a husband whose culture often determines that we eat on the floor! All this in addition to dealing with my severe bouts of depression and chronic fatigue/ME. which have plagued me for too many years. It is through these posts I aim to show others that if you can manage your illness, you can recover sufficiently to live a fulfilling and varied life and deal with setbacks as they arise.
For me it’s all about resilience and positive thinking. Doing something I enjoy and being with people I love and who make me happy. I have said “Goodbye” to all those who drained my energy and resources and am quite content with the life I now have and enjoy.
Smell the roses. Smile and someone will smile back.
