The Healthy Life
I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. There, I said it. After over two years of seeing doctors and wondering why I've felt like I have a life-long flu, I finally fit into the "Chronic Fatigue" box. The best news about this diagnosis (one that I rejected when any doc tried to peg me in there just because he/she had no other explanation) is that my amazing holistic (part western medicine/part eastern) doctor actually is treating the cause.
That said, I have discovered gold mines of books about Chronic Fatigue--and they all apply to me. So, I drink freshly juiced carrot juice multiple times a day, go to bed early, get gentle exercise, cut out coffee and most sugars, listen to my body's warning triggers and learn to be thankful for what my life is.
I just put on my yoga clothes, finished my jasmine green tea, took my 7 pills of supplements, drank my carrot juice...I'm set.
I like to know that I'm doing everything I can for my health.
