“Pacing is much easier if you try to live life, but within your limitations. Luckily, pacing often makes it possible to have a life despite ME. It might be a small life, but it will still be your own.”

“Pacing consists of listening to your body, and seeing symptoms as signs, usually of overactivity. You use information from your body to reorganise your activities to get as low a symptom level as possible. This usually means splitting activities into smaller bits and taking frequent rest breaks. It also means finding less strenuous ways of performing activities. When less energy is spent on some activities, you’ll have more energy left over to have fun.”
