chronic fatigue

075 Get unstuck and off the couch | Melanie White

I think when you are so sick that you can’t get off the couch but you look well and people are looking at you saying: What’s wrong? Are you really sick?... it’s really disheartening and challenging
— Melanie White -

When you've experienced in Melanie's words "a year on the couch" you understand that well-being is not one aspect only. Too many times we focus on the physical aspect and overlook that we are emotional, soulful and mental beings.

Melanie shares ideas on knowing what your early warning signs are so that you avoid heading into a health crisis. Prevention is definitely better than cure. We are often disconnected from what our bodies and minds are telling us and soldier on to our detriment.

Get these and other essential insights from a conversation with Melanie White.

074 Keep questioning the norm | Stephanie Hulett

OK you’re still the old way of thinking and I know from my own body that’s not a good way for me. So I have to kind of ‘Doctor shop’ to find a good fit who understands my goals and the impact of their advice on my body
— Stephanie Hulett -

Imagine growing up with a known chronic illness only to find that the medical system is stuck in the old way of treatment. This has required Stephanie Hulett to have an open mind to thinking what's possible, being in touch with her body and doing her own research.

We hear too often of people feeling the need to share the "bad news" stories with someone who has a named chronic illness. Why is this? Stephanie explores a fine line knowing that her chronic illness can lead to other chronic medical conditions and excessive tiredness. Taking care of herself and balancing her twin passions is now a way of life.
