In the beginning, the frustration and anger I felt about being sick siphoned off a lot of my precious energy. But the hardest hit I took was from impatience. After I began to be proactive about ME/CFS – not waiting for someone else to find the answer to my illness – I had difficulty giving my strategies the time they needed to feel the effects. I wanted to see improvement quickly. At the start, I wanted to see results over the next few days. And if I didn’t see any improvement, I’d abandon that strategy and try something else. As you might imagine, I dismissed several good strategies quickly without giving them the time they needed.
Luckily, I finally understood that in my haste, I was running out of ideas. So as I recycled some, I took more time and began to see real progress. How are you dealing with impatience? Are you giving your strategies the time they need to succeed? Please COMMENT on this blog or Send in your thoughts and I’ll post them with your permission.
