If you want to fully recover from ME/CFS, hindsight is too late. Foresight is where you should be. I regularly encourage everyone who is struggling with ME/CFS to keep a daily health record of treatment and activity - Hindsight.
After a while you will begin to see patterns that support or hinder progress toward full health. These patterns become your best tool for planning ahead – Foresight. We need to use the past and its information to create a plan toward a healthy future. Foresight means planning your week ahead. Putting into place the resources and timing that will support a healthy pattern for you. If you know that something is coming up that will push you, plan around it. Ask for help. Build a structure in your life that gives you the room to recover.
And when you crash, look for the triggers. Yes, your first response will be, “I shouldn’t have done that.” You need to follow that with, “I should be doing this.” Use what you’ve learned from hindsight to create foresight. And then live in foresight. Where is your vision focused? Please COMMENT on this blog or Send in your thoughts and I’ll post them with your permission.

Look for a weekly posting on Tuesdays. And consider being part of the conversation.
Be Well Again,
