My blog features stories & insights from people who have healed from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome* (also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or ME/CFS) including my own. COVID is the new leading trigger.
Sometimes I share wisdom from others, too.
*For those with a viral onset, it's medically called "post-viral fatigue" until the 6 month mark.
When my doctors had no answers when my energy levels plummeted below 20% after a flu-like illness, minor physical or mental exertion caused immobilizing cellular-level crashes (PEM), various bodily functions fell apart, many alarming symptoms made me feel like I was dying, and I struggled using my brain, I felt lost.
After going from doctor to doctor and getting many invasive tests, I eventually learned this condition was called ME/CFS here: “What’s ME/CFS?” (<– I list many common symptoms here, though I choose not to discuss symptoms 1 on 1 with people who reach out since it’s still too traumatizing.)
Here’s my recovery odyssey from ME/CFS if you’re interested in learning a bit more.
After a 3-year health journey, I was able to get more complete answers from an CFS specialist, address my environmental healing blockers, let go of unhelpful patterns, optimize my lifestyle, heal my limbic systems’ response to environmental stimuli, and ultimately (with some bumps along the way) get out.
Along the way, I met many people in my community and around the world doing their best to overcome the same or similar situations.
I will share actionable tips from people who have healed from ME/CFS and those on their healing journeys. If we can combine our wisdom, we can increase our recovery numbers.
***Update: ME/CFS is a cell danger response to environmental stress, and COVID is now the new leading trigger. I hope this website can help those recovering from Long-Haul COVID reclaim their full health.***
