Chronic Fatigue Blogs

Chronic fatigue blogs create an online support community for people with CFS.

Why did I want to blog about chronic fatigue?

My experience with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is that people don't really "get it." People like diseases that are easy to understand, that have a definitive diagnosis, that can be medically treated, and that go away. After trying to explain CFS to caring and concerned friends, only to be met with puzzled expressions, I found myself becoming reluctant to talk about it -- especially as the disease dragged on and on with no end in sight.

I don't want to spend all my time complaining. And I don't like blaming everything on my chronic fatigue. But keeping it all inside seemed to make it all the more difficult.

I started blogging to give a voice to my feelings. I can whine and complain all I want to my anonymous audience in "cyberspace." I can celebrate my accomplishments, no matter how small. I can voice my fears and concerns. I can whisper my wishes without fear of embarrassment if they don't come true.

Blogging also helps me manage my disease. Tracking my posts helps me to see patterns. I can see when I'm over doing it. I can see warning signs and triggers. I can set goals and celebrate when I reach them or see the reasons why I failed ... this time.

Finally, I blog because maybe, out there amongst my invisible audience, there's someone who feels like I do -- tired, frustrated,angry, alone. And maybe something I say can help.
