Over the past two years, I have been exhausted and despite continuous conversations with my previous GP I have had no traction. I recently changed to a new GP and not only am I being heard, but I also have a diagnosis. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It is sadly very common. Basically it means that I am exhausted and there is not a lot that can help me. I have also been unlucky enough to experience the frustrating side effect of gaining 20 kg. I am really struggling to lose the excess weight and get back to a space of health and vitality. The recovery time for CFS is varied so I have no idea how long I am going to be working towards this. It is going to be a very interesting journey especially seeing as it can be managed with some serious life style changes.
