Why oh why am I writing a blog about being ill? Well..... it's not to moan, no not at all, although you could argue there was a lot to moan about. No. It's because I'm living with a chronic, debilitating illness which is very complex and difficult to understand. I wanted to find some way of expressing what it's like for me to live with this illness every day, to help my friends and family to understand. So that when I cancel that visit, that trip or that lunch, you'll know why! (Yes... now the real motive emerges!)

Since becoming ill I've been very worried about losing the 'Louise'ness, the special something that makes me 'me'. Hopefully you will find me in this blog.
