My name is Aido. I am male, fifty eight years old and I live in Dublin, Ireland. Following a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or ME, I retired in November 2012. My journey with ME, so far, has been very challenging. I had my first symptoms in August 2011 and hit rock bottom on 3rd May 2012. It has changed my life. But it has brought with it many new and positive aspects to the way I look at life and the way I live it now. This BLOG is my attempt to help others who find themselves in a similar place by telling my story as best I can and responding to questions / comments that might arise.
