Really shitty night last night

Urgh. Felt truly terrible last night. Drove 3hrs back from Canberra, and felt wrecked by the time I got here. Went to bed. Woke up an hour later feeling even worse. Couldn’t get back to sleep. Watched a bit of TV, and a late movie. Finally crashed back into bed and woke up this morning with the usual run-over-by-a-bus feeling in the head. Finding it a bit hard to be motivated to Stop-Stop-Stop. I wonder if it’s really working?

Feel a tiny bit better this morning. Gonna go do some research today to buy myself a new toy: a digital video camera. YouTube, here I come!

  1. Hey Graham, remember that the whole Amygdala Retraining is not for physical symptoms, its for the worrying about them. Don’t add stress to stress. It’s all about not getting your central nervous system more activated when feeling lousy. All the negative thoughts how real and necessary they may feel are just the amygdala overacting.. on everything.

    Try seeing your progress not as having less physical symptoms, but as not thinking about it. CFS is not just there when you feel bad, its there all the time. Only symptoms may bring it to the foreground. Working on it when you feel kinda ok may be easier than when being totally overwhelmed. Keep up the motivation on “good” days and “bad” days to do the technique !
