Title: What Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Feels Like?

What Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Feels Like?
Dr. Peter Dobie
Many people often ask What Chronic Fatigue
Syndrome Feels Like? Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
(CFS) actually affects more Australians than you
think. It has become quite common these days in
Australia, but many people arent even aware
whats troubling them.   Heres a story of Adam
a patient with chronic fatigue syndrome. He will
tell What Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Feels Like?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is undetectable. Many
individuals with Chronic Fatigue have no obvious
symptoms. Just the dark circles under our eyes
indicate the steady agony individuals with
Chronic Syndrome bear, going through muscle pain,
brain fog and fatigue. Chronic CFS decreases your
spirit. It slowly kills your dreams, your
cheerful nature, your joy, and your unconstrained
happiness.   Individuals with Chronic Fatigue
are exhausted for every single minute every day.
CFS is like something you have never felt before.
In the beginning, it feels similar to flu, a
headache, and how you feel after intense
exercise. The weariness can develop every day
until it becomes continuous.
Theres a chance that if you push too hard,
overlook the symptoms or the warning sign CFS
weakness will wreak havoc on your body. It has a
craving for need to rests on the bed for the
whole day. Its like being a toddler again,
powerless and sad and absolutely crushed by a
tiredness you can't understand, forget about
Individuals who have never suffered from Chronic
Fatigue are not aware of its upsetting nature.
They are not conscious of its unpredictable
assault, the sting of its sharp teeth. They ask
why you appeared to be fine one moment, and now
all of a sudden cant even move from the bed or
couch? Why you go blank and cant think properly?
They fail to understand what's it like being
excessively drained, making it impossible to
close your eyes, and excessively drained, making
it impossible to concentrate on them either. Its
about how you don't know who you are, forget
about what you need now.
Adam says Chronic Fatigue affects me from the
minute I wake to the minute I go to the bed
again, damaged every night. It also affects me
when I rest, as my body doesnt get recharged
overnight and my fatigue even affects my sleep.
At different times each day, Chronic Fatigue
forces me to lie on my bed for 60 minutes or 2-3
hours, and feel the intense pressure on my body.
For me CFS exhaustion implies I need to plan
each day ahead of time. The danger of a weakness
crash implies if I am going out anyplace, I
have to stay aware how will arrive at that place,
how long I will be out, where I can get rest,
temperature, availability of food, noise levels,
how I will return home.   However, I refuse to
accept defeat from Chronic fatigue Syndrome. Im
getting treatment from Dr Peter Dobie, and I have
made many lifestyle changes. My body has started
showing positive results, and I promise you
Ill be back again, but this time fresher,
rejuvenated and full of energy.
