I first read an article in the
Daily Mail earlier this year about someone Amir had treated and was so
encouraged to hear about a possible cure for this
debilitating condition. It seemed to be a successful approach and I
contacted Amir Norris who runs M.E. courses in Wales. Amir described
what he teaches to me and I felt very positive about it and sent in my
Originally booked in for late
April/May, I was luckily enough to get a cancellation place and was
able to go to Wales in March. It was challenging to make the
arrangements about traveling to Wales (especially as I had not been
more than 10 miles outside of town for some time!). Accommodation and
food were tricky as I was on a no yeast diet at the time. In the end it
all fell into place, I got a lift to Bristol, stayed with my sister for
two days to recover from the journey and her partner took me to Wales.
There were 7 ladies on the
course, from all over the south of England, with varying years of
struggling with the condition. Everyone was very friendly and we all
bonded very quickly.
The location for the course was
ideal, very peaceful and a lovely place to relax during breaks. My
B&B was in the nearby village, which has a couple of pubs and a
I will not even attempt to
describe the course; you will get a much clearer picture by looking at
the web site and by speaking to Amir in person. He is very approachable
and empathetic, especially having suffered from M.E. himself.
The benefits start immediately
and after the second day of the course I was able to go to the pub in
the evening with some of the group, which was my first evening out for
Returning home, I felt I had
been given the tools to enable and support me in returning to a normal
life. After a few days the symptoms began to disappear, I was able to
go out for an evening meal with my daughter, go to Totnes on the bus,
drive to Dartmouth and start to make plans to meet friends for lunch
and to go to places that I hadn’t been able to go to for a long time.
Prior to attending the course
with Amir, I had been ill for 18 months and was managing life by
careful pacing and gradually increasing activities. Housework and
cooking were manageable together with short outings for shopping or
meeting friends for coffee. It was so wonderful to start expanding my
horizons again so quickly after attending the course.
As my stamina increases, my
quality of life is getting better all the time. I am working in a local
charity shop, I have started swimming again, am able to make plans with
confidence. I had a fabulous day on Dartmoor, have visited friends in
Torquay and have booked two short break holidays. The long list of
overdue tasks around the house is finally reducing!! Family and friends
are amazed and delighted with my on-going progress.
Personally, I am so glad I was
able to go and experience the course - it has given me my life back.
Good luck and best wishes,
