A last, an excuse to eat chocolate!

My nephew suffers from M.E. or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  He’s 14.  Trust me, I have been as sceptical as the next person about M.E. making jokes about it being properly called “me” disease and lazyitus etc.  But trust me, once you get to see someone with it, for real, and over a period of years you’ll realise that it’s no joke.

Bizarrely scientists think they have found something that might help – a daily dose of good quality chocolate!  I still live in hope for a prescribed dose of vodka but I’ll skip it if it means I have to have CFS/M.E.

    I wonder if my coworker has ME. He falls asleep in the middle of the day. I keep telling my boss that it’s either a medical problem or he’s up playing Halo 3 into the early morning hours. 🙂
