  1. Post-exertional malaise is such a terrible thing, but I guess it helps make the better days all the more precious. I’m glad you find ways to celebrate the small victories – with an illness like this it is so important!

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this. Chronic Fatigue is so badly understood, people can’t imagine what it’s like for those who want nothing more than to live a full life, but have used up all their spoons just getting out of bed.

    When I was suffering, a friend who had suffered from chronic fatigue for nearly a decade recommended The Lightning Process. It sounds a bit woo, but it changed her life, it changed mine, and at least two other friends I’ve recommended it to. It’s used for all sorts of people, but it was designed to help with Chronic Fatigue. http://lightningprocess.com/

    Keep celebrating your good days–that’s a skill you never lose. Four years later, I still feel grateful every day I have the strength to get out of bed, go for a walk, to spend a full day at work.
