In order to achieve a greater sense of well-being and productivity, I am instituting a strategic protocol to thwart and ultimately overcome my battle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), is a difficult adversary, causing untold havoc, rendering me unable to work, exercise or recreate. Moreover, I have great difficulty with the simplest of tasks – getting dressed, showering, basic housekeeping. There are times when I am able to complete what seems to me to be a strenuous task or circumstance – going to a party, doing several loads of laundry, shopping, housecleaning, but these instances are rare and come with a price. Typically, the day after a strenuous task is a rest day – requiring more sleep and limited mobility.
Where to begin? After extensive research, it is clear that an offensive must be launched on several fronts at once. Several factors contribute to my cfs symptoms list. Key roles are played by: Diet, Mitochondrial Function, Digestion, Liver function, Exercise, Sleep, Stress Reduction.
Welcome to my bloggyland 🙂 I hope to continue journaling my progress, my failings, and in-between allow various written expressions to permeate this lonesome landscape.
