Two common misbeliefs about chronic fatigue are that
- It is mental/emotional
- Exercise can cure it.
For me, my adventure began shortly after I started losing weight via walking/running and yoga. I’ve always wondered if that lifestyle change triggered the disorder in me, but I wouldn’t trade the yoga away for the disorder. I don’t have it as bad as most (I think) and my worst days sound like good days to some of the stories I read at https://themighty.com.
But, what yoga does bring me is a barometer to my health. I generally like my yoga instructors and some of them I love, so when I start asking myself why I am in a class, what I am getting out of it, and how long until it is over, I know I am near my worst. My worst? I won’t even go to a class – despite whatever grand scheme I have in place for attendance.
