Honesty really is the best policy

Over the last few days I’ve come a bit of a cropper a few times because I haven’t been honest about situations and how they will impact me. I’m not just talking about being honest and open with others but more importantly being honest with myself. I...

Sensory Overload

Following on from my last post about the peace I found on holiday and also because I haven’t yet got round to starting all my research on the Super Conference topics, I thought I’d write a short bit on how fatigue symptoms can be triggered by your...

CFS/ME and holidays

I’ve just come back from a week in Sardinia. It was a 50th Birthday present from family and we decided we wanted sun and relaxation as a priority. I’m very lucky in that the majority of my symptoms are triggered by cognitive activity so going away for a...

Protein for breakfast

Firstly I just want to say that I’m not a trained Nutritionist. What I write about are my own experiences and my not necessarily help you. This last week I’ve been listening to lots of the interviews on the Optimum Health Centre’s fatigue Super...

Playing Detective

Let’s face it – this isn’t something that you would normally expect to do with your health. You get ill – leave it a bit to see if you get better and if you don’t, you go to see your GP and maybe a Consultant and pretty much leave it up to them to work out what’s...

Pacing

It’s been quite a while since I posted anything on my log page. The simple reason for that is that I’ve been practicing exactly what this post is about. It’s taken every ounce of will power I have to not work through everything on my to do list each week. Which has...

Listen to your body

I sat down to write this post yesterday afternoon. I’d just come back from having a haircut and had had a too late afternoon rest. I’d come out of this rest with the frequent fogginess in my head, the tired eyes, the headache and the rather unpleasant sensation that...
