I watched session 7 this afternoon, on Stress Patterns, including Symptom Thoughts and Meanings. My reaction was partly “my whole life has been like this!”. I’ve known about the idea of breaking negative thoughts before, but never felt really motivated to work hard at it. It always seemed like too much hard work and I was sceptical of whether it would have any result. So it’s not all that new to me, but I haven’t seen it applied specifically to CFS before. Getting better seems like it could be worth the hard work, especially considering how I felt yesterday.
I was feeling a bit tense and headachey this afternoon. I lay down and listened to the whole meditation CD. I feel more calm now.
