since last wednesday theta healing treatment I do seem much brighter, today I've been out twice, for a meditatation group and for lunch, both 5 mins from home. I felt tired this morning but got going okay. I felt tired on way back from lunch and a bit achey all over today, but I haven't collapsed in a heap and don't feel terrrible. I tihnk I have almost made my mind up I will go back to work on Monday, to do four half days only in the first week, and see how I get on.....

was due to go back to work tomorrow but have now been signed off for another 2 weeks. She offered me a note for another month but I'd rather wait and see how I am in 2 wks, can always extend it then if I need to but psychologically I don't want to tell myself I'm so ill I need to be signed off for that long.

Quite low this weekend. I'm starting to feel I don't know whether I'm getting better or not.

I look at my little symptoms chart in my notebook that I update every day and it seems I get a little better then a little worse again, yo yo-ing.

but my husband tells me he can see I am much better than I was, I guess I'm too close to it to be able to tell.

spent all day yesterday lying on the sofa and had to cancel going out for my friend's birthday dinner. had a little cry about that.

today the sun is shining, hopefully it will be a better day.

feet and lower legs still throbbing, P&N on head does seem a little less than before but is still there, brain fog seems constant, short term memory shot to bits.

the yoga and meditation seem to be the only things that make me feel good but i don't have the energy to go every day. I might have set myself back a bit by getting over excited and going there so much!

diet is improving, fighting those chocolate cravings!!!
no sugar yesterday at all again. well done me.

new year, still unwell...bah

I felt quite a bit better over christmas, we went up to see my mother in law up north and my husband doesn't like driving while I love it, so I drove us all the way, we were both amazed I had the energy after being so washed out for so long. my mother in law's place was not in great shape, she's disabled and used her homehelp to get christmas shopping in rather than clean for the whole of december! so I went into energetic mode to help get things cleaned up and bearable for xmas. not sure if I felt better because my brain told me I just had to or because I was out of London or it was just a coincidence. Anyway, since getting back home after 5 hour drive, I have been tireder again. yesterday felt almost as wiped out as I did at the start of this thing....had more blood tests on 29th December. Hopefully I will see the results tomorrow. Terribly anxious about what all this means for my career. Pins and needles on my head, tender feet, general muscle aches and varying levels of fatigue and fuzzy headedness.

how long



now I've been signed off work for a month after spending the last six weeks only able to work sporadically. I'm flummoxed. Can't understand why all this rest is not refreshing me. Feel very fortunate my doctor, employer and husband are all being supportive. But anxious about how long all this is going to take. tired, tired, tired, tired, tired.
