As I drive home my thoughts alert me to a deeper understanding of ME/CFS.
As i look in the rear view mirror i notice my eyes are tired, sore and watery whilst my body acknowledges it's own pain of DOMS (delayed onset of muscle soreness) - a post exercise outcome.
Before ME/CFS I used to greet DOMS with a triumphant smile and a gentle pat of self satisfaction. The victory was all about the challenges I had overcome during the training session, the release of powerful endorphins and the 'stride' of satisfaction that came immediately after.
Now DOMS are unrelated to physical exercise.... The are just another reminder to 'slow' down.
