I am 48, mother of 2 teenage boys, originally from the UK but have settled in the US and have made a home in Vancouver, WA (near Portland- not the Canadian Vancouver).
I have always given much attention to health and was the most energetic person I knew prior to being “diagnosed”with CFS in September 2013. At first I saw irony and thought “why me?” I exercised (probably excessively), ate organic foods-mostly from scratch, and took herbs and supplements. Now I wonder how I held it up for so long? I had a chronic tooth infection from a root canal for 20 years, am emotionally sensitive, a pleaser, often experience anxiety, and really felt the burden of having two challenging kids upon my shoulders as one struggled in special ed for many years. On top of all that I tend to be a perfectionist and feel that my best is server enough, so I give 150 percent to everything, including my illness.
Last summer I finally got diagnosed with lyme and mold/CIRS issues. I have been treating with IV ozone, herbs, hyperbaric oxygen and many detox methods and trying to meditate. I really believe in this program but have a fear that it wasn’t the right time to do it and was procrastinated it after doing the first round of webinars last fall. Now I am trying again because I stopped before I even started after making excuses to myself. I think I am just afraid because I really want this to work.
I work part time as research director for a small herbal manufacturer and herbs are my passion. I formulate new products and improve old ones and I work from home in my own hours which is currently about 2-3 hours a day. Rest of the time I dedicate to self care, looking after my family and domestic stuff, walking with my dog, doing restorative yoga, reading, cooking, concocting herbal medicines for my friends and family. I am learning the ukulele, and try to draw occasionally. I used to garden, hike, run, mountain bike, dance and i miss that part of me. That was probably a little excessive but I find it hard to be brief!

Hello…just saw your post and wondering if you found a buddy to work with.
I live in Milwaukee , Wisconsin and have been ill with cos for 20+ years. I have been to tons of doctors and have Lyme, mold sensitivities, chronic insomnia and anxiety. I hope you are getting better on this program…it is very challenging for me especially when I do not sleep. Wishing you well.

I am wondering how you two are doing with the programme? I just signed up 2 weeks ago and still waiting for my dvd’s. Eagerly… i need the tools. I have been more or less bed-ridden the last 6 months and i am in the process of getting a bunch of tests back. It seems likely that i have CIRS, so i’m about to embark on that as well. I am also 48, single, also used to have a ton of energy and be excessively active. I worked in the film industry but i am now on disability. I have my recovery date set at december 20, 2017 and i’m really rooting for that.
I’d love a buddy in the programme.
I hope you are both making beautiful progress!
