Full comment is here.I just finished reading The State of Me and wanted to tell you how much I liked it. I particularly admire your intelligence and sense of humor and your commitment to advocacy. I enjoyed the story (you are a born novelist), and you did a good job explaining the illness ME. I have been ill for more than 45 years. My mother was also ill; I have no memory of her as well.
I see that Merry writes poetry and prose.
And on subject of poetry, I came across Rosemary Tonks in an article last week, fascinating woman, I must look up her work.
