Too Tired to Think - Guide to long-term fatigue

Book - Coming Soon

Do you know someone struggling with long-term fatigue?  Maybe it's you!

 

I've been dealing with ME/CFS for over 6 years now and currently writing a book about how to navigate physically and mentally what is a debilitating, long-term, and often hidden condition.  

 

'TOO TIRED TO THINK' is a practical guide to living with long-term fatigue.  Full of tools and support, it is a must-read for those struggling with fatigue effects from the conditions:

  • Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) 

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Long-COVID.  

My lessons and personal stories are supplemented with over 20 short vignettes that share the common struggles we all face when dealing with fatigue.  Some of these struggles include:

  • Initially getting a diagnosis, then finding good treatment and a supportive medical team.  

  • Dealing with daily symptoms such as brain fog, inability to exercise, pain, and finding the energy for even simple tasks. 

  • Finding support in our daily life and being able to explain to those around us what we are experiencing.

This book brings to life these struggles and provides practical tools for building a better future.  As a mindset coach, I use to my first-hand knowledge of living long-term with this condition to help you navigate the ups and downs, holding hope for better days to come.  By the end you'll feel seen and heard and know you're part of a wider community. 

Here is an overview of each of the 5 sections:

1. Physical reality…nurturing a tired body.  Covering fatigue symptoms, how to manage finite energy including Post Exertional Malaise (PEM) and pacing.  We end with a discussion around the marathon journey of peaks and troughs as we strive towards improvement and recovery, acknowledging a new normal that becomes our lived reality.   

2. Emotional reality…riding the emotional roller coaster.  Recognising and managing the complex mix of emotions that accompany these conditions, including faulty thinking patterns, mindset training for a healing mindset, navigating the darkest days and building the team needed to help you thrive.  

3. Medical reality…navigating cracked systems.  Understanding the full range of support available and how to utilise a team of practitioners.  Outlining the hurdles most likely faced, strategies to overcome these hurdles and how to meet your medical goal.  

4. Getting the help you need…what works and what doesn’t.  The big picture areas that underpin how your condition is treated, such as lifestyle factors, expert pacing, movement/exercise that is tolerated etc.  Outlining what works and more importantly, what doesn’t work. 

5. Advice for others (including our loved ones).  Long-term fatigue can be extremely difficult on relationships with those around us and often these suffer as a result. There are 4 discussion points to spark conversations with those around you that help create shared understanding, deeper bonds, and mutual support.

I'm so excited to be able to bring you this book full of inspiration to support you navigate what I know can be a really difficult time.
