Today I had a long awaited opportunity to visit the grave of #SimoneWeil. Finding her writings, and her life, both extra-extraordinary, lit up my late teens. Her response to #GeorgeHerbert’s Love, & her living Easter at Solesmes struck loud chords…1/
I knew what I was looking for from photos @RedRector but I hoped 4 a few clues at the Cemetery. An Office? No. Plot number map? No. Chapel? No. Time was short, & I actually had no idea where the ‘Catholic bit’ was: & how big was it? There were tall angels evrywhre so no help. 2/
Some sixth sense or a guiding angel took me to the right area…then a look at the plot number on GMaps confirmed how close I was. The flat memorial is inconspicuous, but the colour of the lovingly kept primulas stood out. 3/

To get a permanent liberation from #migraine, we, as the sufferers, need to be deeply respectful and committed to ourselves at both dimensions - body and mind. 1/7
What goes into the #gut and #mind determine how intense and lasting would the #pain and #affliction be! A doctor can help only to some extent. #Painkillers are affronts to the body and mind. They stop working anyway after a while. 2/7
As sufferers, we need to own it up. In an utterly devastated and vexed state, we need to turn around with fire in heart and tell ourselves - 'Enough of playing games with myself! Let me take charge of my own inner sacred space, deterge it, make a temple of it - NOW or NEVER' 3/7

The heavy-handed (totally out of context) physician commentary on the cases of patients they have never seen or interacted with is so irresponsible. #Afflicted
I have *never* heard of some of the doctors commenting on Jamison's case. This means they don't regularly see ME patients, don't research the disease, and have zero clinical or research expertise. #Afflicted
They filmed at a Stanford symposium that included top researchers from around the world, yet decided to use totally unrelated, nonexpert interviews to comment on Jamison's case in order to convey a POV that fit their narrative. #Afflicted
