Running on Empty

I am really enjoying my job at the moment, I get to work with such a huge range of lovely, interesting people but really feeling like I'm running on empty. Mentally work has done me the world of good and I feel much more enthusiastic about life and am so glad to be back in employment. However as anyone with m.e knows, you can't always make your body do the things your mind wants it to. I have loads of training and upcoming projects at the moment but am getting really stressed out by the exhaustion it's causing. I look in my diary with apprehension at the moment as I know I'm pushing myself to my current limits. This week is particularly busy so fingers crossed I'll manage to cope with it all.


  1. i completely understand where you're coming from - im having a relapse thats gone from being fully functional to full retard in the space of 2months - been well for 8yrs (had ME from 11-14yrs originally) then 3months ago started to get ill again - im working still full time/ leaving early or not turned up due to lack of leg energy! run a small company with my boss and his sister - now he's off with flu and sister having a baby im running the show single handedly and you know what I know its way to much as ive cried almost everyday this week and even with my walking stick struggling to walk to and from work (2mins walk to home). One day at a time, thats all we can do really - forget a diary - its bound to stress you out! Xxx

  2. Really sorry to hear you're struggling. I don't know if I have any useful advice as I would suggest you talk to people to see if you could cut down on hours but sounds like that's not an option? Good luck and hope you feel better soon. Hang in there if you can!
