Blue dog is a nickname I gave my chronic fatigue syndrome, a play of Black Dog. The body of work is intended to explore my experience of living with the condition, not trying to highlight the negative but trying to make sense of a fast-paced world and my relationship with blue dog.

I myself have suffered from CFS for 10 years now and have only recently started to manage it well. The condition is most known for its symptom of extreme tiredness, but others include aches, flu-like, trouble with sleep and memory.

Every day I struggle but it’s my mindset that keeps me going, I am human, I have my bad days but at the end of it all, I welcome the fatigue, it gives me fresh eyes for what is in front of me.
