Re: How To Finally Put An End To the Brain Fog, Fatigue, Anxiety, Depression and Isolation caused by EBV
Does this sound like you?
One of our students once said (before she recovered with us)...
"Some days I could only master taking a shower. And that was ALL I had in me for the day. After that, I was spent and had to sleep the rest of the day..."
Is that you too?
You are at a mercy of chronic Epstein-Barr Virus infection and really just want to get your life back... wondering if that is too much to ask... You just want to feel like a human again, free from anxiety and sheer terror over your deteriorating health. Free from hopelessness and anxiety about your future. Free from feeling so alone and misunderstood in this painful circumstance that doesn't seem to ever end.
You dream of having "normal" brain focus - could someone just turn off that thick cloud over your thinking....You dream of "normal" energy... you know, like other people have - going about their daily business without worrying about crashing by the afternoon. Ultimately, you want to live without thinking about the next time you are bed-ridden again from the overbearing fatigue..., brain fog, vertigo, pain... gut problems... you name it...
In fact, right now, your life would already greatly improve if you could just stop worrying about every single task you try to embark on or any simple thing you eat, and wonder how you're going to make it through the day without crashing... how long you can keep up with your job demands.
You may also be feeling frustrated by the fact that no matter what you do, you just can't turn your brain fog and your exhaustion off. And depressed by doctors telling you "it's all in your head" so exercise or get on an antidepressants. You KNOW exercise makes you crash. You KNOW you don't need medication.
There is no one out there who understands and no one who really knows how to help you.
The isolation is profound.
I can tell you...
