About me

Gender Female
Industry Education
Location Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada
Introduction I'm a middle-aged woman. My blog is about both my experiences of living with chronic illness (M.E./CFS), as well as my general thoughts and ponderings about life (including my pursuit of another graduate degree). I got M.E./CFS after a severe mononucleosis infection in 2002. Since 2006, I've been well enough to manage graduate studies (in environmental education) on a part-time basis due to the flexible schedule and the fact that I can work mostly at home. Prior to getting ill I was a wilderness instructor/guide. I still have a real passion for the outdoors and nature, despite my inability to maintain the energy for any type of exercise or extended outing.
