Health knowledge made personal
Forgetful Girl is in her early 20s, living with post-viral CFS in the UK. She first became ill with Glandular Fever , but was diagnosed with CFS/ME a few years later. It's a misunderstood condition, but one that changes your outlook on life. Forgetful Girl finds having a positive frame of mind really helps. Although fatigue is one of the major symptoms for her, she also has to contend with a really, really bad memory. Forgetful Girl has to write a lot of things down (that is if she remembers to!) so she's forever carrying a little notepad around with her! Her memory is so bad that she has on numerous occassions got a drink without holding a cup, put juice on her cereal instead of milk and has fed her dog chocolate biscuits and then proceeded to eat the dog biscuits (at least FG will have a shiny coat!).
She remains annonymous as she wants to be able to blog about her experiences freely, also it's fun to have a secret identity (she wishes she was Wonder Woman)!
