This is dedicated to David- thank you so much for inspiring this post.

As part of ‘My Bookshelf’, I’ve included lots of books that have really, really helped me in understanding my illness and in my healing, but I understand that many of us might not be in the position to read due to fatigue and physical discomfort. I remember not being able to read absolutely broke my heart and so I wanted to give you a round-up of some great YouTube clips, audiobooks and films that you can watch and listen to to help you while you’re resting. Most of them are CFS-related, but to be honest, after a while, you just want to enjoy your recovery and stop thinking about being ill! So, I’ve included some fun (if slightly geeky!) recommendations that you might like.

So, here is my list of the best CFS books, videos and meditations. Let me know if there’s anything you would add to this list- I’ll keep updating it!
