Due to the extremely chilly temperatures we've been having in the UK recently (chilly for what we're used to anyway) my ME has come back with a vengeance. I noticed one morning that I was incredibly sore, nauseous and very heavy and couldn't fathom why. We'd had an easy day the day before, and I'd been in bed since 9pm the night before (not sleeping all that time, baby took care of that!). It wasn't till I looked at the thick frost outside that I realised the cold was the culprit. Needless to say we cranked up the heating and I've been mostly wearing my pj's with hoodies.
Its not a bother to me like it used to be, but it does get slightly concerning when I can feel my body slowly stopping as I do things, I wonder how long I've got till it stops moving, but fortunately we've not reached that point yet.
We went to the park the other afternoon, only for 20 minutes, but it was enough to render me useless that evening. I'm so blessed to have a husband who paced and paced the floor with baby that night while I lay in bed.
It might be debilitating, but this cold weather is a great excuse for cozy, lazy days, watching films and watching the kids play.
