  1. Hi James. Just wanted to say thanks for sharing. It’s nice to know that you are human too and have bad days like the rest of us. I don’t mean that horribly but I totally understand and have empathy for what you say about pushing yourself too hard. Ironically my tendency to do this has become worse since becoming chronically ill. It’s like I feel that I have more to prove. Your food always looks amazing and I hope that in years to come I may be able to replicate your success. I have a website up and running now, so I’m at least making progress.

    1. Hey Charlie, thank you so much for the comment and support 🙂 really appreciate it! Sorry to hear you’re also suffering but stay positive and it’s great to hear you have also setup a website. It can be great to have something to focus on whilst in recovery. All the best on your journey and always happy to help out 🙂

  2. Hi James, great blog with lots of information. I had a tropical virus and breast cancer at the same time which caused many horrible symptoms and chronic fatigue. One of the most difficult parts of my recovery has been the negative attitude of other people, who I’m pretty sure just think I’m just being lazy. I got lots of comments like “well you look well!” Quite irritating really. I also was informed that people at the golf course were saying I was ‘making it all up!’ This, for me was the most difficult part of recovery as it negatively effected my mental health. Would be interested in hearing other views on this subject. I too am a person who is very driven to be fit and healthy. I probably do push too much but also think that if I push my body to be fit and strong then that will aid recovery – sort of 3 steps forward, one step back. Occasionally I do overdo it though. What are your thoughts?

  3. Wow! Great video.

    Your story sounds really similar to mine. I’ve had CFS for 7/8 years (started when I was 19) I was a good athlete and very driven and pushed hard.

    Bed bound for two years, and I’ve recovered to about 65 percent I would guess. I will check out your recommendations and see if they can help!
