Basically, I had to abandon all visions of ‘the ideal’ holiday, whatever that meant. While I was still riding the rollercoaster of denial, my holidays were horrendous push/crash cycles. Mostly crash. After I started following the protocol, it was an anguished series of choices to try to stay within my known limits. Whatever success I had was tinged with a dose of guilt and a tad of anger at the medical system and its failure to unravel the mystery of ME/CFS. But my holidays did get better as I came to understand my version of ME/CFS and what worked or didn’t.
My son came home last night and we are hopeful that he’s home to stay. How did you cope with your holidays? Were you able to manage some balance in your energy expenditure or was it push/crash?
