Lost at sea: coping with bedbound life

In the summer of 2020, I started having what I’m currently referring to as the Epic Flare of 2020. Now that I finally have a little more energy for things other than “surviving”, I thought I would share some of the things that helped me.

As always, feel free to ignore anything not relevant to your situation.

Also of note, while I definitely had some periods where brushing my teeth made me crash for several days, I don’t think I am currently dealing with Post-Exertional Malaise associated with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (aka ME/CFS). This is probably because I know enough people with ME that I just rested…A Lot. So maybe resting a lot is what your body needs, I don’t know. I’ll leave that decision up to you.

I’m going to try to keep this simple so it’s easy to read with low energy and brain fog. This means I’ll be skipping over the detail of my Epic Flare of 2020.
