To manage and recover from ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome), we all need a range of strategies. It is often the small details that added up over time can make a big difference to how your ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) feels. Now, I’m much more of a big picture kind of person and only seem to do detail when it’s essential so you can be assured if I’m talking about a particular technique, it is one that will help. I am just starting to write about the different strategies that I think are of use so it will be a bit before the toolkit has many tools in it. See below about my Pinterest board if you want details NOW. (This was me during my relapse.) Don’t forget to subscribe here or follow me on Facebook or if you want to hear when I’ve written something new. I’m also just starting to use Facebook more as I find it a lot, lot easier to write a short Facebook post rather than a blog!
Often, those strategies are pretty tough to do regularly and consistently, and I talk about the ‘Hidden side’ in many posts. Click on that tab if you want to see what I’ve written so far.
When my ME/CFS was at its worst was when I used the most strategies – over 25. I’ve creating a Pinterest board to show them all. Pinterest board: Toolkit of techniques to manage CFS
Here’s what I’ve written so far:
Get Well Soon book review: informative and encouraging story of a music journalist’s experience of ME/CFS (Nick’s book actually fits in Hidden side too as he talks about how it is to have chronic fatigue syndrome.)
You may want to check my Home page as I don’t always get round to updating this one! There’s three posts linked to the top and then it shows the most recent posts.
My blog is a work in progress and there are many areas I’ve not yet written about. If you need an overview of ME/CFS, have a look at this Healthrising article:
It’s not just for ‘newbies’!
