...or to undertake an activity or to rest instead, etc. This is, according to guidance of my CFS clinic, something that happens before treatment begins. I think the idea is that I'm meant to plan my activity levels in advance and just stick to it. I haven't got my head around this yet. I had...

I have been drinking 12-15 pints of water a day for as long as I have had ME/CFS. The CFS specialist nurse recently said that it's NOT an ME symptom and I need to get it checked out. I don't have diabetes - checked for that within this year. I am due a blood test on my liver. In the last few...

The past week I replaced my daily long black coffee with decaf long black. I've been doing increasingly better with doing 5-10 mins yoga in the morning and the eve. I've been doing a little more meditation. I've been trying to get my body clock to change - to wake up earlier. This was in...

I REALLY don't want to have people look after me. I don't want my life to be invaded. I want to act according to how I feel, not according to how other people want me to act. Even if they think it's for my own good. What's best for me is acting according to how I feel - this is how I can feel...

At the end of some days, I think about what is in store for the next day. I plan. I think, ooh, I have no meetings tomorrow, so I could go over to that lovely sunshiney cafe and have a tasty coffee. I could bring my pens and do some drawing. I could bring a book and read, or my magazine. I could...
