FoxleyTowers is specifically ME/CFS and chronic disease orientated;before you groan and make a sharp exit please give this place a chance. I know that this disease isn’t sexy, most who have got it probably don’t want to accept it, talk about it and importantly if you have it you don’t feel that anybody understands it.
By way of an introduction I have written a brief summary ‘About Me’ on the second page about my; health history, 12 years working relationship with chronic disease and eventual direction of recovery spanning an overall period of just over 20 years.
I’m endeavouring to create a place underpinned with an outlook of optimism for professional and non-professional people who wish to explore practical help, experience and information in relation to improving health, well-being and overall quality of life.
A place that will potentially provoke thought, if you are chronically diseased, in relation to your priorities and an opportunity to further explore beneficial changes in your lifestyle. If a holistic approach tunes into your instinct of healing possibilities or is an approach that you would like to better understand; then you have come to the right place.
FoxleyTowers will provide opportunities to share experience and knowledge with the intention to; empower, encourage and support those who may sometimes feel isolated or overwhelmed. Living in a chronically fatigued state can insidiously become the ‘norm’ and making changes can sometimes seem impossible; feeling between ‘a rock and a hard place’ is not unusual, you are not on your own.
Short articles will be published quarterly, which to some degree, will be subject guided by ‘followers of foxleytowers’. Followers can opt for being notified via email when articles are published on FoxleyTowers. To receive articles please subscribe free by giving your email address in the box provided, where it is will vary according to whether you are on an e.g. laptop, i-Pad or iPhone.
Alongside a quarterly FoxleyTowers article the possibility of ‘followers of foxleytowers’ professionals putting forward information giving or enquiring articles for consideration could add an exciting and empowering element for all followers.
Periodically and equally important there will be opportunities for ‘foxleytowers followers’ to contribute empathetic or carer experiences and views, to be considered for inclusion in some articles.
Additionally, a London publisher who is familiar with my style of writing has asked me to think about putting together a draft proposal ‘Self Help Book’ based on 20 years empathetic experience, ongoing research and more recent personal recovery path and I will be writing it this year with a view to presenting it for consideration this summer.
Potentially ‘foxleytowers followers’ will, over the coming months, be given specific opportunities to feedback experiences in relation to living with and for example coping strategies in relation to ME/CFS. Some empathetic or carer input with permission could potentially add authenticity by way of example regarding for for instance a particular issue.
Do you think that visiting FoxleyTowers will in some way be of interest and useful to you?
Is there anything in particular that you are interested to know more about or you would like to discuss with foxleytowers followers?
Are you a qualified practitioner/therapist with experience in treating people with ME/CFS or have an interest in the condition, would you like to submit an information giving or enquiring short article?
Please don’t forget to ‘Click’ follow FoxleyTowers at the top right hand side of the page to be notified of future articles and posts.
Please note that the FoxleyTowers is not a place to debate whether the disease exists or its possible origin, latest research/pharmaceutical trials and findings, latest cures, fund-raising or where it sits within the worldwide medical arenas. Appropriate ground rules will be set, mutual respect will understandably be expected.
Comments, views and ideas will be appreciated – We look forward to hearing from you!

HI, I developed successful methods of treating the chronic fatigue syndrome, but there is no cure so it is a matter of managing the problems satisfactorily which I do.The methods which I developed have enabled millions of people to understand their problems and manage them properly but unfortunately many don’t know about me and others, such as Simon Wessely are taking the credit and getting knighted for their contributions to medicine.
I know a lot more about this problem than Simon Wessely.

Good luck with your projects
Hello Max, thank you for your comments and the attached link should individuals wish to view your site. It is my view that there is no such a thing as a cure for any disease; ME/CFS is not an exception to the rule. Regarding Simon Wessely;some people will have heard of his long standing work and approach in relation to ME/CFS and some people won’t have heard of him. It really isn’t for me to comment at Foxley Towers; this arena is not about debating who is right and who is wrong regarding their take and approach to ME/CFS. It is about creating a positive, helpful and peaceful place to empower, support and share information perhaps in a regular way. It is helpful that this subject has arisen so soon so we can nip this potentially inflammatory debate in the bud, thank you Max. Appreciation for your good luck wishes; it is intended to be a joint working project and the participants who choose to be involved will develop its authenticity. I look forward to working with you.
