My Healing Journey …
I know this title smacks of toxic positivity but I have no idea what else to call it and I do want to document my journey. So for now, this is the category and title I will use to document, and for you to follow, this journey through.
Just to add, it’s not such a far fetched title as I do have hope that one day I will heal and that journey will have to start somewhere, and so it could be here. I also believe that if I am registered with a specialist ME clinic then I will be able to avail myself of targeted medicines and treatments as and when they become available.
That said, I want you to know that right now, in 2021, I do not believe there is a cure for ME and I know that I cannot heal from ME right now. Presently, scientific expertise interest regarding ME is very lacking but the knowledge of a few dedicated and sincere scientists is progressing exponentially and so I do have hope that the future may hold healing for us all.
Nevertheless, I can work with my body and for myself, to consolidate where I am right now, which will be as good as healing because I am consistently making myself sicker and it needs to stop before I kill my self. This is not a suicide pronunciation, this is down to pushing my body so much that it can no longer go on.
KAROSHI: (in Japan) death caused by overwork or job-related exhaustion (in the case of ME, our bodies are so shot at that we push it over the edge and die)
