A brief energy high would devolve into a long low. No real explanation – just overdoing. And the magic pattern of ‘just right’ seemed so elusive. When had I crossed the line into ‘too much’? Was it this or that? When should I have stopped and rested? Was there a signal that I missed? There was always lots of time to crank thru the failure questions when I was in a long low.
So just as the weather forecasters only get it right a fraction of the time, so do patients struggling with ME/CFS/SEID. What do the most successful forecasters have in common? Data, data, data and patterns, patterns, patterns. You know where this is going. If you don’t have a health log, get started. If you have one but you’ve been lax at recording, get back to it.
And if you’re a dutiful daily data gatherer then sit down with it and mine it for every clue it holds. Please COMMENT or Send in your thoughts and I’ll post them with your permission. You can use the Contact Form or send an email to Martha at DefeatCFS dot net. And Guest Blogs are most welcome!
