My first two years of struggling with ME/CFS were all about my failure to succeed at my life. All I thought about was what I wasn’t doing, who I was letting down and how I wasn’t figuring out what had happened to me. My focus was on what was going wrong and how it was my fault. One huge negative focus. Finally, after a horrendous crash, we decided to change our approach to ME/CFS and at the same time to change our focus. We started to move away from how I was failing and to focus on how I was progressing. The focus became centered on what I did that day and how I built on that the next day. Yes I had setbacks but we focused on the patterns that gave me positive results and repeated them.
