ME Awareness Day

“Be…Together = Comfort” © 2012 by Shiloh Moore
May 12 is International ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) Awareness Day.  To celebrate, I drew this image and wrote this poem:
‘ Comfort’
© 2012 by Shiloh Moore


When in pain and exhaustion of an indescribable magnitude,
It hurts too much to talk…
But the comfort of your company
is powerful.

    Shi, how do evoke so much feeling and deep truth with the stroke of a few lines? Your style is very, very special.

    When i'm in bed i'd love to feel the warmth of another's silent (but not empty) presence. There's a powerful transference of energy that takes place when someone lovingly sits beside you.

    Thanks so much Lilith xx I love drawing simplified to express as much as possible. I don't really know how I do it?!

    There's nothing quite like having someone to share the load with you and just be with you when you need it. I wish all with chronic illness had support from loved ones in this way. I'm so grateful to those that have sat with me on my journey – and those online who share the load as well xx
