Abstract

This peer reviewed book chapter is an autoethnographic testimony to illness and endurance in queer subjects. It seeks to contribute to queer disability studies, and is a feminist intersectional analysis of how social class, disability, gender, and sexuality may impose on health. It also seeks to explore themes of the longterm, endurance, and resilience. The chapter contributes to a subgenre of critical writing on ME/CFS.
