I am Clark Ellis. I have myalgic encephalomyelitis / chronic fatigue syndrome and most of my blog posts are about this disease – advocacy, the politics at play, about bad research like PACE and good research like the End ME CFS Project, and interviewing doctors or advocates, fundraising, etc. Due to my illness, most of my friends are on-line and I love to engage with readers, so I’d love to read your comments on my posts, or on Twitter and Facebook.
I am a writer by design, but didn’t discover this until I was an adult. I am entirely self-taught. School for me, was an under stimulating experience. I have days now where I learn more on a subject than I learnt in all my time at school. And I wasn’t a bad student, quite the opposite, I just had shocking teachers who saw mediocrity as an achievement. I believe we must always set our sights higher.
I write fiction, some of which will appear on this blog, as well as novels and screenplays that I am working on behind the scenes.
