I'm back again!!!!

Hi, no you're not imagining it I am here again!

Had a rubbish weekend health wise. Spent all of Saturday with a migraine & most of this afternoon too. On  the plus side my throat seems to be better so hopefully this dip I have been having is finally coming to an end??!!

I'm feeling a bit down tonight. Had one of those hubby doesn't understand moments earlier & I got a bit upset.
Ok...ok so I have a bit of a belly at the moment, but as I said to him I would love to do some exercise & keep fit but I can't. If I did some exercise I would then need to allow time to recover & rest from doing it as I learnt in the group last year. If I do that then I won't be able to do something else .g make tea.
I want to be able to do everything but as I have just proved to myself over the last few weeks. Trying to do everything lands me in bed & really ill for 3 weeks & counting!!!

I really need to get back to what we did in the group last year scoring myself, resting, relaxation time, structured days & pacing. I know it works but it is sooo hard to keep at it.

On the scoring system 0 being REALLY bad & 10 being really good I have been a 3 this morning & a 1-2 this afternoon which equals not a great day & fluctuating between 3 numbers in one day.

Sorry you've over done it. Don't beat yourself up about it though. We all do it. It always seems to me to be part of the imbalance we all have. Sometimes we need to prove to ourselves that we are really ill, we feel a little better and think 'maybe I don't really have m.e., maybe I just need to push myself/get fit/whatever'. Just tell yourself tomorrow is another day, don't think about doing the whole pacing etc...just think about doing a little towards it, then think about doing a little more. It's like being given a huge meal when you've just's overwhelming and makes you feel sick. Sorry to have written you a book - it's just been there, done that syndrome lol. Take care and love yourself, Hugs lin

Forever Living ~ Aloe Vera

Hi. It's been a very long time since I posted on any of my blogs. Apologies!Since having my wonderful son I just haven't really had time for anything. My crafting and drawing is on permanent hold and I spend my time looking after him and managing my ME.However! my benefits are coming to an end in June and I really want to try something for myself I have decided to become a forever living distributor.
I have been attending interviews at the job centre as I am now down as "fit for work" but there's no way I can go back to employment i'm not that "fit" and I want to spend time with my son. To be fair the job centre have been very patient and helpful and doing this will not effect my benefits whilst I'm still receiving them.Why forever you ask? Well I have used their products for a long time now and as it's very flexible it will fit perfectly around my ME and being a mum.I'm not officially a distributor yet but by the end of this comi…

Crafting is my Therapy. What's Yours?

I suffer with chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety and depression. Together they can make me a very fatigued, emotional, angry, withdrawn person. I over do things because keeping busy takes me away from the anxiety and depression, but the truth is all I am doing is running straight into the arms of my fatigue monster when I do it! This picture is something I thought of the other day to explain this feeling. 
I try to meditate and I am starting to do small amounts of stretching and yoga, but the one thing that helps keep relaxed and sane, and has done for many years now is my crafting. I love all kinds of crafts. My latest makes are my CE tested Sensory Monsters "The Peepos" they are great to touch and cuddle when you're feeling blue. 
I have also found my online friends in the crafting communities and chronic fatigue groups very helpful and comforting. Stops you feeling so isolated. 
Something that brings me happiness is helping others which I hope to do with my sensory to…

Research brings me to GAPS

After much time away from alot of things I've had time to think and reflect. I've done a vast amount of reading and research due to my own problems with the M.E and candida and my sons food allergies/intolerances. My research brought me to the book Gut and Psychology by Dr Natasha Campbell-Mcbride It was a very interesting read on top of other research I had previously done I was sure reading it that the only way forward was for me to at least give GAPS diet a go. So tomorrow I shall start day 1 and I have decided to record my journey with it on here. Please excuse my lack of sense in this post. It's late, I'm tired but felt I needed to get this out so I had made a start!Bring on tomorrow 😁
