Another link shared over at Poppyposts…

Years ago, I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue. Not the syndrome, simply being overtired. Fortunately, my doctor, a family practitioner, also specializes in Fibromyalgia (FM) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). He developed the interest because of his patients. He’s one of those who sincerely wants to help others. He also works in bariatrics (weight) because he was a roly-poly.

Unfortunately, when I was diagnosed it was early days, and they didn’t know much about either illness. Yes, it’s been fascinating watching from the front lines, so to speak.

Caroline shared the link to things to do to help:

It was encouraging, as I read through the list, to realize I had been doing most of those things intuitively. I need to learn to do them consciously. I want to create them into healthier habits instead of things I remember to do sometimes.

Update: Knew I forgot something. Over on the right side of Poppyposts are a list of links. It’s where I found the above link. http://poppyposts-blog.net/

  1. Good list. Thanks for sharing.

    • The awe-inspiring wonder of bloggers. So many genuinely want to help others.

  2. I’m so sorry you struggle with fatigue. I have a digestive condition that can lead to fatigue, when I’m flaring, so I know how frustrating wanting to *do* but lacking the energy can be. Although on those days, I like to remember I am infinitely loved, regardless of my productivity level. 🙂 I hope you find strength, healing, and energy.

    • Thank you, Jennifer.
