Frustration and M.E.

One of the most frustrating things about living with M.E. is no matter how hard you try, it doesn’t mean you’ll get anywhere. While at the same time, you have to try so incredibly hard just to stay in the same spot and not fall backwards, but sometimes even this isn’t enough.

We spend our lives being bought up with this idea that the more you practise, the better the outcome. This is what makes M.E. so mind boggling because it decides to be an exception to this rule.

Because of this, patience becomes so key to anyone suffering from it and to all those around them, because M.E. has a mind of its own and you never know what it’s going to do next.

It’s so easy to become frustrated when things don’t go right, especially when you feel they should.

But the truth is sometimes we need to remind ourselves that while feeling this frustration from time to time is completely understandable and acceptable, it’s not good to feel frustrated all the time.

The simple reason being is when we feel frustrated, we feel like giving up and losing hope, and that’s the last thing we need to feel.

We just need to hold on to the fact that while our continuous efforts have no affect to us on the outside, they’re certainly making a difference to us on the inside.

And trust that one day all this effort we’re putting into getting better will finally pay off
