'I always feel lighter, brighter, geared up. It is so fundamental. What is so powerful is thinking and acting for myself, being nourishing, kind and gentle to myself.

'Creative Journaling has been a liberating experience for me. After having ME it has helped me to get right back into the swing of life, which is something I thouthgt I would never do. I've made friends with demons and they are now helping me come closer to my dream of being an artist. As a left handed person I felt very inhibited about writing in general. By exploring using my less dominant hand it has paradoxically liberated my creativeness.' MS, Bristol
