ME/CFS is essentially a form of extreme burnout. The burnout’s gone past the point of no return and one can no longer simply take a vacation or get some sleep in order to get better.
This blog is all about understanding the triggers, how it feels and how to recover. Those moments of despair do happen and I’ve developed a bag of tools to help me get out of the pit. My favorite one is listening to Mozart’s symphony no 12 in g major. Here’s the delightful menuetto!
(If you’re going to buy it I recommend the Karl Bohm recording. Remember that you don’t have to get all 46 symphonies – just number 12…)
