I haven’t always associated chronic fatigue with good things, but whoever said sensible people play the hand they are dealt … knew a thing or two about resilience. Actually I told a teeny lie about 5 good things, I am working on the rest 🙂 – but here is one to start the list!
Wrapped in my favorite throw rug and cuddling with my dog for a guilt free afternoon nap.
Actually this is my dog Billie sticking a wet cold nose into my face to wake me up. Does she fear I might sleep through her dinner time? It’s never happened but who knows how a dog thinks! She does give me a lovely cuddle too when I need one – like when I collapse for an afternoon nap…
Well, you look very comfy with your doggie Kim. Is that a Cocker? I love Cocker Spaniels. I had a sweetie for years. Oh, and by the way, I suffer from CFS and was diagnosed twenty-five years ago with it. So I understand your fatigue issue girl. Big cudos to you for starting your blog. It looks great! 🙂
Hi Karen, yes she’s an English Cocker Spaniel – a gorgeous breed, very affectionate. Thank you for sharing that you also have to deal with CFS and for stopping by with a comment 🙂 much appreciated.
Aw, I think that the four-legged medicine is probably as good as, or better, than some of the medicine that comes in pill form. 🙂 But you know, the way they behave in the 30 minutes before meal time, I think my dogs are convinced I will forget to feed them! Sure hope you and your doctors find an effective combination for you.
Thank you Lynette 🙂 I love the way 30 minutes after meal time they try and convince you they haven’t been fed! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my first blog.
My dogs always can make me feel better. They also know when to it’s feeding time and will not let me miss it.
Thanks for saying hello on my blog Susan 🙂
Well done, Kim. I love the beginning–well, actually, there’s only 1 thing, I’m working on the other 4…FUNNY. Remember to ask your readers questions at the end of the post, something they can respond to. We’re on our way, eh?
Thanks Gretchen 🙂 and thanks for the reminder. I will make sure I ask a question at the end of the next one (gulp – the next one!) Yes, I think we are on our way. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
I agree with Gretchen about the beginning of your post being funny. Good one! I deal with the stupid chronic fatigue, too. Dog cuddles are good medicine! Your blog looks great and I love the different headers on your various pages. Very cool!
Thank you Lynn, and thanks for sharing that you also deal with CFS. I wonder if lots of authors do? thank you for stopping by and commenting 🙂
Everyone needs a guilt-free nap now and then! My dad was diagnosed with CFS, but fortunately (because it’s easily treatable), he turned out to have sleep apnea instead. It’s terrible that living with chronic conditions so often comes down to management, rather than treatment. I have food allergies and chronic pain, so you have my support and sympathy. Hugs!
Thank you so much Lindsey 🙂 and good luck with your own condition – hugs back!
