Exercise And Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - Anne-Maree's Experience

by Anne-Maree Geogegan
(New South Wales, Australia)

I have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I am sure it started 25 years ago after contracting Glandular Fever and being very busy with 3 children under 3.

My doctor advised me to do 20 minutes of walking everyday. The exercise helped my physical symptoms and also kept me buoyed emotionally throughout the early days.

I can sometimes walk further on consecutive evenings, however sometimes if I do extend myself too much I pay for it big time the next day or two.

Gradual exercise, in my view, is very important. However we Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sufferers sometimes like to make up on our good days by doing too much exercise - only to regret it after. So this is something we should be aware of.

Hi Anne-Maree

That 'boom and bust' cycle seems to be a familiar experience to those who follow the pacing approach doesn't it?

Thanks so much for sharing Anne-Maree.
