I had M.E for about 7 years. It was debilitating, frustrating, infuriating, depressing, distressing, sad and lonely. I found it difficult, sometimes impossible to do the simplest of things. My family didn't understand. Some of my friends became bored of my illness.
People thought my illness was something that 'I should just snap out off' and my favourite quote by many..'I get tired too', so I must have chronic Fatigue as well! Arghhhh!
I became so interested in my illness that I wanted to understand how this happened to me..
I tried lots of different treatments that were offered to me and I went to see a therapist.
In my personal experince and those of the people I have treated since, there is more often than not an upset in childhood. Working through this, learning how my past was affecting my present and finally understanding myself better; I shook off M.E completely and I have not have a relapse in 19 years.
If you have just been diagnosed, or currently unwell or someone in your family has chronic fatigue and you would like someone to talk to then send me an email or call for a chat.
There is life beyond M.E.
