Kathleen Vaillancourt

Connecticut, U.S.

I have suffered from  ME/CFS for nearly 40 years. I live with my wonderful husband of 25 years, my mom and my precious daughter. My illness has progressed over the years. However, before I became homebound approximately five years ago, I managed my lifestyle and held several careers in the fields of nutrition and dietetics as well as in business and marketing.


I have always absolutely loved the water and used to enjoy many types of water sport, but now my hobby is limited to taking pictures of the lake outside of my bedroom window.


If I were to return to full health, I would start a campaign locally to help those afflicted with this illness. And I would travel across the country to visit my daughter at college.
