Like the Red Sox who have approached this entire season with focus on “Every pitch, every out, every inning, every game”, I finally understood after two years of crazy push/crash cycles that I needed to bring my struggle with ME/CFS to “Every hour, every day, every week, every month.” If I intended to be well again, I needed focus – consistent, every hour focus.
I needed to bring my struggle into the moment and make it the most important factor that effected each decision – everything had to be viewed through the window of my goal to regain my health. And yes, I was blessed with the opportunity to make ME/CFS my focus every hour. But it was not without deep sacrifices for me and for my loved ones. This path is hard and long. Some days seemed endless. Some days I lost ground and some days I gained.
And like the Red Sox who went from last to first in one year with pitch by pitch focus, I regained my health in two years with hour by hour focus. How are you bringing your struggle with ME/CFS into each hour of each day? What are your strategies? Please COMMENT or send in your thoughts and I’ll post them.
