“Based on my experience in successfully treating at least 1,500 cases of cfs, the return to health involves 3 stages. First, you put the viruses involved into remission. Second, you have to repair the cellular and systemic damage. Third, the patient must ‘learn the lessons of the disease’ so the same lifestyle and emotional patterns are not repeated the future. In general, most of my cfs patients do well fairly quickly if they follow our...

I was reminded that things “just are”, and I ” just am”.
Sometimes we need to dive below the surface, to explore the depths, and as we do so we disappear from sight for a...

It’s just over a year since my diagnosis with CFS/ME and during a stroll along the beach this afternoon I reflected on how I couldn’t even manage a walk outside the door at one point.
The main thing that came to mind though, was an image I’ve had which helped me to visualise what was going on and what I needed to do.

CFS/ME; it used to be so misunderstood that people were basically told they had a dibilitating condition for which there were was no cure and they would have it for life.

From early on in my diagnosis a friend who had ME told me that if...

Sometimes I don’t know what to say. The reasons I speak are many and complicated.
I can talk, it’s partly a family trait, ask my Mum?

Have I finally accepted my diagnosis?
Who wants to have ME/CFS, it’s no fun, and bloody hard work to get well. I understand about it being some a gift and an opportunity for change, and I believe that, but it doesn’t mean it’s easy to accept my reality.
For the last few months I have struggled along on this Mediterranean trip of ours. I want to be here but I also don’t because it can be hard and incredibly frustrating.
