Over the past week, no less than three people have directly asked me why it is that even though I’ve healed CFS, I still continue to write about and give advice about Chronic Fatigue. This is a question I’ve actually been asking myself a lot recently, so I wanted to put down my thoughts, just in case you’ve been wondering the same (and also for myself!).
Why I’m Still Giving Advice About Chronic Fatigue
Most people who recover from chronic illness go back to their lives and never look back. If I’m totally honest, I have been looking back. I never think about CFS returning, but I do love to take a birds-eye view of what I’ve learned. Not only am I interested in what I’ve learned (10 years is a long time not to come away with any lessons!), but I’m also interested in life after CFS.
The more I write, the more I believe that I’m writing for the future you. I’m writing for the part of you that knows with everything you have that you will get better, even if your mind takes over sometimes and tries to talk you down. I’m writing for the realisations I’ve had as a result of going through Mind Detox Practitioner Training, looking my own dated fears and self-imposed limitations square in the eyes, and passing down lessons and advice about Chronic Fatigue to you in the hope that they’ll help.
A 2.56am Realisation
About two months before I started my blog (a blog which was originally called ‘All Natural’ and contained some pretty lame smoothie recipes!), I was watching one of Dr. Wayne Dyer‘s lectures. Wayne always spoke about being woken up in the middle of the night by spirit and knowing it was time to write.
Well, a similar thing happened to me a few days after I finished watching his lecture. I was woken up one morning at 2.56am on 21st June 2013 feeling energised and alive, instinctively grabbed a pen and paper and sketched out the homepage for my blog in the living room. Yep, that’s it- on the scrappy piece of paper below! (For some reason, I even wrote down the time and date at the top of the paper.
The name changed, but the concept stayed the same, and that how it’s been for nearly 3 years. It took me another 6 months to actually start putting it all together, but I took the hint eventually!
Why Do I Do It?
Why do I still do it? Because frankly, I can’t help it.
It all feels a lot bigger than me and if anyone can benefit from my insights and advice about Chronic Fatigue, then I’m so grateful to have been of help.
What’ll happen in the future? I’m not entirely sure, but I feel as though I’m always been led by something bigger than myself.
I always love hearing from you, and will continue to help as many people as in can in any way in which I’m guided.
Thank you for being here, beautiful one.
Love, Katie xxx
