Team Gryffindor!

A selfie from my trip to the doctor yesterday wearing a vintage jumper that reminds me of the Gryffindor house crest, which is convenient seeing as that’s my house!

I’m slowly growing accustomed to doing more waiting, and less pushing myself to do things that result in PEM. And since my body sort of screamed at me to do less, I find myself noticing the small things around me I used to take for granted with renewed appreciation.

I also find myself caring a lot less….so whoever was sat next to me smoking in the car with black tinted windows so I couldn’t see them, got treated to me singing along to The Fray (Happiness), Amy Winehouse (You Sent Me Flying / Cherry), Sia (Breathe Me), Sarah M (Adia), Coldplay (We Never Change), and Lou Reed (Perfect Day).

I stopped short of Wild is the Wind by Nina Simone, because I feel like it’s a late night song that requires me to be pretend drinking red wine, in a Margo Tenenbaum state of mind.

Now that I’ve made things potentially awkward, let me know what your Hogwarts house is and what some of your favourite Sing-It-Out-Loud-DGAF soul songs are 💛

Have you tried a weighted blanket? Do you think it helps w/ your PEM or daily soreness?

have you tried a weight blanket? do you notice it helps post-exertional malaise symptoms? or just daily issues?

Have you noticed anything helps post exertion/exercise malaise?

Does anybody do or use anything before, during, or after exercising or any activity that reduces malaise or after effects?
