Today is day 9 since my last crash and I'm finally doing a bit better.
This one has been one of the worst. I am still upset with myself...this was preventable as I knew better ..... this should not have happened. I've certainly learned my lesson though. CFS is here, probably for good (at least to some extent) and I'll have to deal with that. I've been going against the grain of my personality this past week (which is difficult) and have been resting, resting, resting. Meals have been less than stellar...but food nonetheless. Everyone has, once again, had to chip in and do more. Hopefully, that won't last too much longer.
I've also been looking over my notes, trying to remember what, exactly it was that started me on the road to improvement a year ago. When I was first diagnosed, I researched....and researched a lot. I was able to learn so much helpful and valuable information from those who have the same condition...whether it was what worked for them, what didn't, medical info that just wasn't right, a book recommendation or perhaps an article or website. I'm so thankful to my on-line CFS friends who've been both willing to share their successes and struggles all the while using up their valuable (often limited) supply of energy in order to do so.
I made notes...many of them and am now re learning and remembering things to do. I don't think it was any one thing that started me on the road to feeling better...but a combination of things. I need to hit that combination again (and this time I'm writing it down)
We moved to NL to enjoy and explore this beautiful province....which I still plan on doing. While we have seen some of it....there is still a lot more area to cover. There are pictures to be taken, things to be learned and friends to be made.
Looking forward to fully recovering from this latest crash.
