Working with Chronic Fatigue

Working with Chronic Fatigue

I’ve known for a while that I’d have to write a post about how to cope with a job and CFS. It’s quite a bittersweet topic for me, as I’ve definitely had my ups and downs and upsets around the world of work and in many ways, I let my job situation define me for […read more]

How to Accept Your Chronic Illness

This is the big key (and mystery) of healing – how to accept your chronic illness and ourselves just as we are now- sick, ill and frankly, a little bit hopeless. In the darkest times, when you’ve lost count of how many days you’ve been staring at the ceiling for, waiting for doctors or even family […read more]

Uncovering and Remembering 'You' during Chronic Illness

Uncovering and Remembering ‘You’ during Chronic Illness

  Yes, you. No, not that you- that one, there! There you are! Hello! Bless you, glowing and flickering like an excited little candle. You see, I’m sure you’ve probably forgotten all about you.

{AUDIO} What Does It Mean To Conquer Fear Spiritually?

{AUDIO} What Does It Mean To Conquer Fear Spiritually?

  I wrote the title of this post and laughed a little (nervously), because you know as well as I do that this topic runs deep, deep, deep.

How to Cope with Loneliness in Chronic Illness

  As many of you I’m sure already know, loneliness and isolation form a very large and intimidating part of this illness. You’re spending so many hours a day in your own head, in bed, wondering when it’s all going to be over, and to be honest, a lot of the time, stringing a sentence […read more]

The End of Woo Woo

The End of Woo Woo

  I’ve been incredibly guilty in the past of apologising for being interested in alternative therapies and things that are a little bit ‘woo woo’. I asked you all on Facebook one night if you felt the same as I did (a little bit frightened to admit this to people) and the reaction was mixed- some […read more]
