Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

After spending last summer trying to diagnose a heart issue, I didn't slow down.  I kept working and spending time on all the things I believed were important.  I kept feeling worse but just figured I'd do something about it the next week.  The next week would come and I just took on more and hid my exhaustion deeper.  This summer I reached a new level of tired.  I was so tired throughout the day that it was making it hard for me to think through everything I needed to get done.  I was so tired some mornings that it took forever to muster the energy to get up.  I didn't know what was wrong with me but I did know that something was very, very off.

After lots of testing, I now finally have a diagnosis.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Watch my vlog about my diagnosis here to see what I really think about it & how I intend to handle it!

Be sure to follow along here and on social media because I will be sharing updates on my health & wellness journey!

ALSO, tomorrow starts a new series I'm bringing to the blog that I've been working on for a while and am super excited about.  Tackling the Essentials.  We are going to talk about how to tackle all the essentials in life one post at a time: budgeting, laundry, house cleaning, faith, style, meal planning, etc.  I am SO excited to talk about these topics with you and learn how you all do these things too.  I am going to try to post about these each week and hope you will enjoy them and give me feedback in the comments about how you handle these things in your daily life.  My goal is to create a community to talk about tackling the 5,000 things we're expected to do in this crazy life.  I love reading about how other people handle these things in their lives and hope you all will enjoy this series!

  2. I'm sorry to hear this but at least you know. It does get better as I was diagnosed with it years ago. Better days are ahead.

  3. Love your new blog design. Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I hope you find solutions that help you establish normalcy again.

  4. I'm glad you got a diagnosis. It's so frustrating to feel so bad and know something is wrong but not be able to figure it out. When I had health issues a few years ago, I was so frustrated because everyone just kept telling me that I was depressed - but it was so much more than that, and it was such a relief when we figured it out and I could start the road to recovery. I hope that you can find comfort and relief as you adjust to a new normal, too!

  5. Only when a good balance is kept well between the two can the society have a stable present and stable future.combat chronic bad breath
