About Katherine Owen

Hi there. My name is Katherine Owen.
(I also use the pen name of Katherine T Owen to distinguish me from the American novelist of the same name.)

A journey of finding health within illness

I have lived with chronic illness since the age of 23. The same illness has shifted from a diagnosis of post viral fatigue syndrome to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Along the way I have also been 'mapped' as having fibromyalgia.

RANGE OF personalizable cards and gifts.

The healing-themed gifts are designed by myself, Katherine, the author of
this website HealingCFSME.com

Proceeds go towards the cost of the website. Thank you. Enjoy!

Through the worst 14 years, I had little speech and was unable to feed myself.

I experienced dramatic healing – a significant improvement in health – in 2008.

I continue to live with health challenges.

Nonetheless, I celebrate a BIG :-) life of friendship, hugs, church, poetry, writing, music, art and trips to see the beautiful Wiltshire landscape around me.

If you live with CFS/ME in Swindon, Wiltshire, you may wish to refer to a list of healing methods available near here.

Katherine Owen as lyricist

I was winner (one of 6) of the Rethink your Mind competition in 2017 - I won an ipad  :-) 
Mark Morriss of the Bluetones wrote a song with my poem I would not be without you as the lyrics.
The video is also amazing! Click below.

I wrote lyrics for the tune My Sweet Hermosa (music first on that occasion), sung by the band Koribantez, of which two members continue at this time as the Latin Jazz duo Gilmore n Jaz.
