Story
Jason's Story - I was tired most of the time, but with some good days. On the good days, I would try to exercise and then crashed badly the next day. The crashes lasted longer and longer until any type of exercise left me bedbound for several days. I learnt how to carefully manage my energy levels, which meant no exercise at all and very short walks. Inevitably, I became depressed, frustrated by the fact that I couldn’t exercise or even play with my kids for any length of time.

I also got frustrated with the medical community, with primary care doctors completely misunderstanding the disease, prescribing me antidepressants and urging me to exercise more. I sought the advice of ME/CFS specialist that opened my eyes to the range of therapies that are available. So I decided to experiment on myself and record the results in a journal for each type of therapy I tried.

Over the months and years that ensued, I realized that I had recorded a large amount of valuable information regarding various types of therapies, vitamins and pharmaceuticals, specifically what worked and what didn’t work. I then decided to collate the information and write a book in order to help others navigate the myriad of therapies and pinpoint the things that actually work.

I have called the book "Chronic Fatigue Gone! A Recovery Plan for Long COVID. ME/CFS, Lyme & Fibromyalgia (and for anyone who wants more energy)."
Words of Advice
In conclusion, these therapies combined help me live a relatively normal life (he can't run but can play golf, work, and play with his kids ). It's costly, time-consuming, and takes some fortitude to keep working and using these therapies. Sometimes I lapse, miss a few days, then count the cost. So I brush myself off and get back on the therapy horse, so to speak. There are few things in life that are easy, and a chronic illness is certainly not one of them! But with a bit of determination and fortitude, it is possible.
