Apologies

I just wanted to do a small update to apologise for my absence and… lack of updates!
As stated on my ‘About’ page, I suffer from an illness called M.E. or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Sometimes various symptoms worsen or improve, and currently my concentration has worsened to the point where I find reading difficult. However this isn’t permanent and I will be continuing my reading very soon.
I want to give the books the concentration and (relatively) sharp mind they deserve and in my current state of mind I just can’t do that.
But hopefully I’ll return shortly and blog about the following books and more –

Albert Camus – The Outsider
Cormac McCarthy – The Road
Franz Kafka – The Trial

Thank you for reading,

Rachel

    I’ll be here, waiting for you! No apologies necessary. I have found that a lot of doctors don’t really believe in CFS and they seem to think I was making it up, but the book “Beat Sugar Addiction Now!” is written by a doctor and he knows so much about it. I feel like I learned a lot about my own body just by reading the section on CFS, and it made me annoyed that no one had told me this before. I started reading the book because I thought it was a diet book and would maybe help me lose weight, and if I wasn’t carrying around so much weight maybe I would feel better overall and be less achy. But it’s actually a whole part on CFS is in it and I learned a lot about my hypothalamus that I never knew before. The information is good and smart science but not too hard to understand. You need to find help if you have what I have-so much pain it hurts to pull my shirt over my head or bend down to tie my shoes. I had to start wearing ugly crocs just because they were easier to put on and more comfortable, and that is not who I wanted to be-a fat person in unstylish shoes who has trouble getting in and out of the car. I feel like if I can find a doctor who will help me and I can do what it says in this book, I will get a lot better. It is written very convincingly and you can tell he knows what he’s talking about. Plus he has a list to help you find doctors that treat CFS and I am ready to get treated and stop feeling like my nerves are exposed every time I move. Here’s the website for Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum: http://endfatigue.com/
