I spent 15 years losing the battle against Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Three years ago, I found treatment that worked for me, and now I am making a comeback.

Holy cow, Zarla.

That's great. Looks like I happened to post the right thing at the right time for you to pick up on it. Fantastic. :)

Jody,
You certainly do help others, many more times, and in more ways than I'm sure you know! Some time ago I read one of your blogs,you opened my eyes and gave me the strength and determination to take some control back for myself. Heck you even said how i should do it!

You are a great inspiration and i thank you,

Zarla

Zarla,

Well I don't know what I wrote but I'm glad it made a difference.

We chronics, we have each others' backs. And that's gonna help us all get better one day.

Thanks so much for the encouragement.

Ha ha! You spoke about taking control of your day, 40 mins 'activity' then 20 mins proper resting through the day. This made me think about the quality of rest, and how i had been staying 'active' until i was a wreck and NEEDED to rest.
As soon as I tried your idea, i felt much more in control and positive. it made my days easier to get through and plan for-made the family more accepting too!

thanks !
