Why the Fatigue?

Published by kappello on

It has been a rough period for some time now and I was trying to figure out what the heck was going on.  People often have no clue what it is to have a syndrome play out.  It’s a roller coaster, a cloud that never leaves you, and you just never know when it will produce a storm.  The other thing it does, since you end up being isolated in a way is a constant replay of your past, the would’ve, could’ve, should’ve. Not only are you battling physical fatigue etc.., but also trying to stay positive, even as you find you can’t do what you used to do, take long walks etc…  How do I combat this?  First I acknowledge what I am feeling, then I channel any angst into writing, coloring in adult coloring books, praying, meditating.  It doesn’t take the pain etc.. away, but it does help to keep my mind from going into a depressive state, my emotions from going negative.  That is half the battle in these situations, so find constructive ways to deal with the emotions and you have won half the battle.   If the mind is negative etc.., that is poison to the body.  Be constructive, stay strong!
