Woo Hoo! I’m starting to feel better! I no longer feel as though I have fallen into a terrible deep hole.I no longer feel as though I will disintegrate and cease to be.
Do you know what suprises me most about my exhaustion adventure? well 2 things…. How incredibly interlinked mental health and physical health are… and that I got caught by it. I’ve spent 15 plus years specialising in the interweaving of vitality and emotions – I’ve had both parents severelly impacted by chronic fatigue! and I couldnt see inside the misery that it was largely a lack of “energy, vitality, chi, mojo”. I’ve done only 3 things to get better. Herbal remedies ( thanks Deb), Bowen Therapy ( thanks Melissa) and the clincher- I told myself to cut the bullshit and stop feeling sorry for myself & feeling like a maytr. Seriously- thats it. I’m a tad embarrassed and shocked. I was wailing in despair to anyone that would listen ( thanks all). I know true depression and anxiety are much bigger than just exhaustion, don’t let me give you the impression it ain’t so… but to feel as bad as I have even up until a few weeks ago and to have it lift with simple care is just incredible. I am so grateful! I wish I had a magic wand that could do the same so simply for all my friends and family that struggle with depression and anxiety. I can’t, but perhaps now I will understand a bit better and care a bit more.
