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: * Home education, * Health and mental health, * Recovery from trauma, * 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). Adoption was a thing that we considered but it never happened for us. * Slowly exiting fundamentalist evangelical Christianity/ Messianic Judaism, with one foot still in homeschool and domesticity. * Looking for a sane and healthy faith, finding progressive, liberal Anglicanism and Celtic Christianity. Still Christian, still influenced in some ways by Messianic Judaism (but hopefully only positively).
