This is a really interesting article, and I can’t help but notice the similarity between the symptoms of what the author calls ‘post-natal depletion’ and ME/ CFS/ Fibromyalgia – doctors and scientists and article writers are constantly coming up with new theories, but given that I got ill right after giving birth in 2003 (and the fact that I have had 9 pregnancies altogether, and at least 5 of those were back-to-back without a break), I wonder whether this might more readily explain how and why I became ill. And perhaps suggests a way forward to get healthy again.
Part-time Starship Captain and fledgling feminist... Writing about all sorts of things, often through the lens of Star Trek: * Marriage and Parenting * Home education, * Health and mental health, * ADHD * Recovery from trauma and misdiagnosis * Moving from vegetarian through paleo and back (to veganism) in one easy mid-life-crisis. * Moving from city life to very rural Cornwall in one not-so-easy mid-life-crisis. * Being addicted to: books, planners, pens, stationery, hats, scarves, shoes, twitter and facebook groups. :D * Grief and loss (recurrent miscarriage and secondary infertility). * Considering adoption from care. * Slowly exiting fundamentalist evangelical Christianity/ Messianic Judaism. * Working towards a sane and healthy faith. * Exploring Judaism * Exploring progressive, liberal Anglicanism and Celtic Christianity. * Still a peculiar mixture of Jewish and Christian, now with a healthy dose of scepticism. A p.s.: Please don't confuse me with the lovely 'Christian Janeway', who is a buddy of mine, but she isn't, in fact, me. We have lots in common, but Christian Janeway is the savvy young American, I am the middle-aged, awkward British version from a parallel universe! :D
