Woman holding a Nintendo Switch Lite


My name is Lisa, also known as The Unlikely Gamer.

I fell ill with a virus in October 2019 and, in February 2020, I was diagnosed with M.E. I could no longer work and spent my days resting at home. In March 2020, I started playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) on the Nintendo Switch. Living life on my Animal Crossing island has given me a positive focus and it's helped me to adjust to the limitations of being chronically unwell. If you are interested in my experiences of playing Animal Crossing, whilst living with M.E., please head over to The Unlikely Gamer section of my blog.

These days, I work part-time (from home), still play Animal Crossing, and I rest a lot.

I have created M.E. And My Island as a space to share my experiences, increase awareness of M.E., and to show my support for the amazing M.E. Community.
