Relief from Illness

I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and a resulting anxiety condition.

Everyday I struggle with anxiety caused by an illness that is not very well understood. There is no magic bullet for my condition but I have found relief in the form of birds and animals. I watch for Bald Eagles in my community. I see them with their massive wingspan glide past and I get so excited that all illness disappears! I occasionally am privileged enough to see them grab a fish from one of the many lakes. I love all wildlife and they have given me much in return. I take joy from each encounter with any form of bird, insect or animal. They have become an important part of my quality of life.
