Explaining my Chronic Fatigue : The Phone Battery Theor
Explaining my Chronic Fatigue : The Phone Battery Theor
Let’s talk about chronic fatigue. It’s a symptom which comes with a lot of long term chronic conditions and is it’s own chronic illness in itself. For me, chronic fatigue is possibly the hardest symptom I deal with on a regular basis, and is something which is incredibly difficult to explain to people who don’t live with chronic fatigue. What is Chronic Fatigue? Chronic fatigue is more than…

at1:00 am BG:  226 HR:  95 Symptoms:  Heart palpitations, brain fog, increased anxiety Notes:  My heart rate went to 217 earlier when I was dancing (aka jumping around and struggling to breathe).  It was very exciting and very much made my friends anxious.  I’ve decided to stop talking about POTS and crap unless prompted because I feel like I’m worrying or annoying my friends.  I’m stuck at my computer, caffeinated and overwhelmed with homework.  I am very ready and very incapable of sleep.
2:55 am BG 282 HR 82 Symptoms:  Adrenaline rush, increased anxiety, brain fog Notes:  Still doing homework.  Got a very sudden adrenaline rush and it is very unpleasant.  My thighs feel numb and tingly at the same time and my anxiety feels like someone’s about to attack me.
12:58pm BG 150 HR 110 Symptoms:  Fatigue, heart palpitations, brain fog, lightheadedness. Notes:  Fell asleep at 5 am.    Couldn’t finish as much homework as I wanted to.  I have too much homework to nap or rest (spoiler alert:  spent 6 hours in bed, 2-3 of those i think i was asleep).  Breakfast led to distracting heart palpitations.
Breakfast:  4 Eggos, 4 sausage links, 62 carbs. Lunch:  N/A Dinner:  (very late, like 9 pm late) brownie, 18 carbs
Note at 1:21 am the next day... don’t do what I did.  Don’t chug coffee thinking you’ll get things done, then at 2 am you stop being able to work but still stay up until 5 am because you’re so caffeinated that you can’t sleep nor can you do anything.  It led to me sleeping through math class, then disassociating through gym class and not joining the Zoom meeting, then feeling like I’d been hit with a truck so I got stuck in bed for 6 hours.  I’m still too wired to be able to sleep (I will be resorting to reading fanfiction until I fall asleep, because I have standards) but too exhausted to do any homework.  Making this post is my way of fueling my ADHD and workaholicism. I know that it sucks to be told not to partake in bad habits that are so tempting.  So, really, I shouldn’t be telling you not to chug coffee.  I should be telling you to lower the coffee amount, or choose decaf, or choose a darker roast (more fire=less caffeine) and to make sure that you’re properly hydrated.  If you have POTS, aspire to drink 2-3 liters (67-101 fl oz) of water every day.  Try to raise your salt intake to 5-6 grams, and consult your doctor about it beforehand if possible. I’m so happy to talk to anyone with questions, concerns, or if you just want to vent.  My inbox is open.  Send me questions, concerns, or vents however you’d like to and I’ll reply as soon as I can (which will probably be between midnight and 3am Pacific time, because that’s when I tend to write these posts). This was so long, and it wasn’t meant to be, but I’m feeling a lot of things today and I wanted to share them with you. I love you, and I hope you have a good day or night.  Please take care of yourself - and if you can’t, that’s okay.  I can’t brush my teeth or wash my face tonight, and I haven’t showered in 3 days, and one of my elbows is so dry that it hurts.  You aren’t alone in your struggle and I send you all of the good energy I have and that surrounds me.

Replacing Shame with Compassion MECFS
It feels so good to start feeling better after the MECFS crash! There are so many ways I understand myself and life that I didn’t before. First of all, I am shocked at my denial. Then again, I’m not. You would think I would be more aware of myself having worked as a therapist most of my life. Especially working as a chemical dependency counselor, you would think I would be the master of detecting denial. I saw it in others but could not see it in myself. I was getting “sick.”
When I was working as a counselor in a Federal prison, I used to ask my clients, “Who had the right to be angry in your family?” It really helped clients to look deeper into their family patterns. It never occurred to me to ask “Who had the right to be ill in your home?”
Bingo!  That was my mom. My compassion for my mom is exponential now. When I was younger, I was judgmental of her. She had health issues starting at age 32 which continued throughout her life until she died at age 52; her body full of cancer. 
The perfectionist, overachiever, know-it-all part of me focused on fixing my alcoholic dad, who I adored. Later I transferred this to fixing the world. I was a healer! I could not be sick! I have always thought of myself as being on the front line; what today we would call “an essential worker.” Now I understand. Not only did I need to fix everything and everyone, I also could not be sick. This codependent behavior also included not learning to receive and especially not asking for help.
It’s funny. As I write this I think about the $500 utility bill I have. I could not call to get public help unless everyone else who needed it, got theirs first. Note to self again and anyone else who does this – stop it! You have to fill up in order to give from your excess, and not from your need. I’ll sell my old computer. 
Back to denial. Once I got it, that I was ill and I was not my mom, I started to blame others. Once I got through this, I was free to look at my own behaviors. Without judgment and blame, I inventoried myself (thanks to 12 step programs) and become clear on how the MECFS affects me and how I can take better care of myself. 
As I write, I am watching the latest MECFS videos on Youtube by leaders in the field. (Edit, edit, edit, edit!!!) I am delighted to be one of many and not the problem patient that no one knows what to do with. The shame that I felt for being sick is no longer there. Interesting.  I don’t feel a need to fix people (as much) now, but rather can just sit and listen. In 2006, Dr. Al Morgan, a naturopath drew a circle and divided it like a pie. He pointed and said, this is your part, your responsibility (or something like that) and I just couldn’t hear. I could do it all!
There was a time when friends, acquaintances, etc. would call or email anytime wanting answers to their psychic questions or connect with someone on the other side. I was on call all the time. Today I love my work as a psychic medium and as an author. Being bedridden for 4 months and mostly horizontal for a few years, I am so grateful to schedule clients weekly as I can (dependent upon my brain fog, fatigue, and myalgia.) It’s the delight of my day!
Let me say that again differently. Now that I give out of my excess (as I have taught for many, many years,) when I am with a client or a group, I am so full of love and connected to Spirit. When I connect with client’s loved ones or guides, it is not unusual for me to feel so much I just cry. No pain, just pure love. 
There is so much more to share now that I am honest with myself about my health and have healed the shame.

Find Joy In The Little Things
Good Morning.
Today I awoke feeling like I hadn't slept at all. The constant state of fatigue is not allowing me to get as much done as I would like and it does bother me a lot when I cannot keep up with the tasks that I have assigned my own self in my head for that day!
On a good note, my cats came and cuddled me this morning, which they do often, and it is some of the best medicine for my anxiety. Whatever thoughts or memories are plaguing me at the time just break away when my cats walk right up to my face and demand my full attention. If you have anxiety, I highly recommend a pet!
For my symptoms of anxiety/depression/whatever is actually wrong with me, I turn to animals a lot. I focus my attention on my pets, making sure they are well taken care of and feel loved, enjoying their quirky personalities, and taking photos of them that I will keep forever. It is a form of therapy for me.
These days, my joy has diminished to a scary low. One example is that I no longer enjoy thrift store shopping the way I use to. It used to be a thrill to take an hour of my weekend and paw through racks at my local thrift store to see what gems I could find that day! I use to find and fix up home decor and to this day my walls are decorated with the art I created from thrifted items. Now, I can barely muster up the strength to get into the store.
Going into a store now is a very intense and draining experience. I usually sit in my car for 10 minutes in the parking lot, smoking a cigarette and trying to calm myself down. When and IF I do get into the store, my thoughts are immediately thrown askew and I cannot focus on what I am there for. I hear the chatter of people talking, laughing, carrying on about their lives, and it all gets very loud. I suddenly feel like all this is going on around me and I'm just invisible to it, or maybe in the way of it? I'm not sure how to process the overwhelming feelings but it is not an enjoyable experience for me and a lot of times I do not even get everything I needed before I'm just done and need to leave.
I truly hope that my love and joy of animals never dulls or weakens, the way other things have that once upon a time, made me happy.
I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday and remember to find joy in the little things.

Yesterday was Exhausting!
Yesterday was exhausting. I don’t know how. I don’t know why. I didn’t do much. I had a chronic pain support group in the morning on Zoom and a workshop at lunchtime also on Zoom (tho I napped through part of it- Ooops). I had a medical appointment which consisted of me putting my feet into foam for my orthotics and saying I like those ones. I did not have to make dinner. I did not have to run…

April 12, 2021
11:18 am BG:  187 HR:  135 Symptoms:  Brain fog, heart palpitations, fatigue, dizziness. Notes:  Breakfast led to the brain fog and heart palpitations which didn’t really disappear.  I’ve been trying to get salt tablets but they’re a little tricky to get over the counter, plus I can’t go by myself.  I’m not even sure if I could buy salt tablets myself since I’m a minor.  I feel like I need to nap but I’m not tired enough yet to be able to.  If I can have enough salt that might help the fatigue.
1:58 pm BG:  171 HR:  94 BP:  140/90 Symptoms:  Fatigue, thirst, heart palpitations. Notes:  Took a 3-hour nap.  Feel feverish but class starts in half an hour so I can’t fall asleep again.  I was so brain fogged in English class last Saturday (for reference, 4/12 was a Monday) that I didn’t realize that I had missed an assignment and now I’m behind and I can’t catch up (as I’m writing this at 12:47 am, I still have not caught up and am using this as my ADHD break).  I also have been so anxious since Spring Break (April 5-9) because I haven’t been able to get back into the swing of school anymore.
breakfast:  4 eggos, 4 sausage links, 62 carbs (I miscalculated yesterday) lunch:  N/A dinner:  2 cheeseburgers, medium fries, and an unfinished Arnold Palmer from McDonald’s (128-ish carbs [oh gods writing that number hurt])

I've literally never felt so in the moment. Not until, apparently, I 1) found out I had low iron and started taking supplements and 2) got tipsy.
I'm sorry, every little action is not supposed to take energy out of you? Like, opening a fridge door is not supposed to take anything noticeable out of your energy? Because for real, I was starting to think people were just fuckin. Toughin it out. Or felt that drain but just had a lot of reserves.

I wonder if one day the fibro and hypermobility will get worse and I'll be really unwell with it.. if I'm lucky it's not progressed or if I'm just waiting for this to worsen.. I wonder if I'll feel like a burden in my future.. I'm lucky now but will I be lucky then? Will it be my fault if things worsen because I didn't apply pacing well enough or because I didn't work hard enough at my physio..
I'm trying but will it be enough? Will I keep getting worse? It frightens me sometimes to feel pain I didn't used to feel and fatigue which wasn't always there..
Will it keep getting worse..?

Join Somatic Movement Summit & Discover lifelong practices for vitality, fluidity & healing
...How to de-stress, feel free in your body & experience healing motion.
When you move about during the day, do you feel discomfort or pain?
The ability to move freely and gracefully is the secret to youth and vitality. 
As we age, our bodies tend to become less fluid and mobile — leading to tension, pain, and discomfort, which causes even greater rigidity. What’s even more alarming is that our minds tend to follow suit.
Our modern-day society encourages a lack of mobility. We are chronic sitters — at desks, in cars, on couches. We become set in our ways as we move through life. 
As a result, we feel “stuck” inside ourselves. We lack the energy, freedom, and resilience we enjoyed as children, when we ran, jumped, and played for hours every day.
The good news is that we can recapture the fluid movement and resilience we experienced as children — an imperative for fostering lifelong health and wellbeing.  
How often do you think about the way you move? Do you have a daily movement practice? 
Are you familiar with somatic movement — movement coupled with awareness? It provides a pathway to healing through embodied motion.
That’s why I’m excited to invite you to join the Somatic Movement Summit — an experiential online gathering of seasoned leaders in this growing and evolutionary field. 
In this one-of-a-kind summit, you’ll not only receive abundant knowledge from world-renowned somatic movement experts… you’ll also experience firsthand, instructive practices and demonstrations of a variety of disciplines.
You’ll have the opportunity to slow down and embody the richness of what our accomplished speakers and practitioners have to offer.
Free Online Event Somatic Movement Summit April 19-23, 2021
This powerful gathering will feature more than 40 of today’s highly sought-after somatic movement experts and teachers — including Bernadette Pleasant, Paul Linden, Lavinia Plonka, Eleanor Criswell Hanna, Judith Aston, Raja Selvam, Yasmin Lambat, Elisa Cotroneo, and Emory M. Moore Jr.
They’ll be sharing simple somatic practices to move you from stress, anxiety, fatigue, or depletion into easeful states infused with vitality and relaxed alertness. 
This groundbreaking Somatic Movement Summit will reveal the medicinal art and power of embodied motion. We hope you’ll participate in this online gathering presented by The Shift Network. Prepare to be transformed!
>> RSVP here for the Somatic Movement Summit — at no charge <<
During this healing 5-day event, you’ll discover:
Ways to nourish your nervous system through centering and connective movement
How embodied movement can help dissipate stress, anxiety, fear, and trauma
Somatic movement to reverse the effects of aging, and experience a sense of openness and spaciousness
Ways you can apply conscious motion on a daily basis to provide ease around challenging and stressful situations
Pathways to strengthen immunity, improve heart rate variability, and facilitate natural breathing 
The connection between movement and personal power
How somatic education transcends old notions of the body as a machine — reframing liberating movement as a holistic discipline
Embodied movement for grief
Somatic strategies to address pain
Somatic methods including Hanna Somatics, Feldenkrais Method®, Rolfing, dance, Somatic Yoga, Body-Mind Centering, Somatic Psychology, pandiculation, and breathwork
How somatic movement reactivates youthful energy, resilience, and freedom of movement for lifelong vitality
And much more...
We do not have to resign ourselves to inertia, disease, or deterioration as we journey through life — we are designed to stay in motion!
Join this unique gathering of expert teachers in the field of conscious motion, and start enjoying the rest of your divine, delicious, movement-filled life today!
I hope to see you on this journey of somatic awakening!
>> RSVP here for the Somatic Movement Summit — at no charge <<
Here’s a small taste of what our distinguished speakers will be sharing with you…
Bodyworker Steve Haines shares how to heal pain, anxiety, and trauma using embodiment — so we can find safety inside our own bodies again after experiencing distress.
Join Lavinia Plonka as she reveals how to invite pleasure and power through movement — by exploring the intersection between movement, emotions, and the mind.
Orit Sen-Gupta will share her wisdom on a somatic approach to meditation — and guide you to enhance your practice by becoming aware of each of the five sense organs.
Discover pandiculation with Yasmin Lambat, RSME — more than just stretching, pandiculation is nature’s way of nourishing, shape-changing, lubricating, hydrating, and revitalizing fascia, the connective tissue which serves as our fabric of embodiment.
Learn Somatic Groundwork™ with Kaila June, RSME/MS — a floor-based movement practice that soothes the nervous system, restores tissue integrity, and deepens sensory awareness as a pathway to healing and self-knowledge. 
Bernadette Pleasant reminds us that “grief is love with nowhere to go.” Receive her tools for navigating grief and reawakening your innate capacity for JOY and aliveness through movement.
And much more…

Fatigue
   I don’t know what else it could be - I mean, I do - but I’m starting to suspect I may have Chronic Fatigue but don’t want to self diagnose ( for personal reasons ). Yes, I have Major Depressive Disorder, and Yes I have a tendency to become anemic and my body tends to run low on vitamins no matter how many I pump into it.. 
   But I’m beyond exaughsted. I get chronic headaches, I get small aches, dizziness, etc. But if I mention it to my mom I get, “but you’re able to get out of bed.” Yeah, because if I didn’t--- I’d get yelled at, made to feel like I’m lazy, which also makes my anxiety worse, ignored, huffed at, etc.    
  Someday’s getting dressed seems too much. But I have to fake it and force myself. Or else. I feel like any concern I have is brushed aside.      I get - despite a messed up schedule - a good amount of sleep, I don’t eat a lot of junk, etc. I never feel rested. On good days I have a decent amount of energy- 3/4 of my spoon drawers. Or sometimes I think I have a full drawer of spoons and I don’t and peeter out in the middle of a task, leaving a mess behind.     I once tried to see a doctor about it, and he asked if I had Depression and ( other more personal questions about my past ). Like yes, but I was still able to ice skate and walk, etc, without feeling like I am just.... exaughsted. But I hate saying anything because I’m either brushed off or made to feel like I’m overreacting. 
  anyone have any thoughts.

using up my energy?
yesterday i had a rly active day, i went grocery shopping, did laundry and tidied in my new apartment. by the time I went to bed I felt exhausted, but i thought a night of sleep would reset my energy. but today i feel so mentally drained. it's like I used up all of my executive function yesterday and today I could barely get out of bed. is this a common thing with adhd? or humans in general? I feel like I should be able to do these basic life things without crashing the day after...
