If you have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue or any other seemingly unshiftable chronic illness going on then - of every post I've ever written - I would say this is the one to read as it feels like a giant dovetail joint coming together to me. Epstein Barr virus is so much more complex than I ever realised before and the gift of learning all about this is seeing how I could have - at last - a root cause for every single aspect of a lifetime's worth of health challenges; maybe you too. Better still, every chance of a recovery when you know what is being faced here.
If healing is a return to wholeness, then loss of good health is the ultimate fragmentation of the self; a state, made manifest, of something much deeper occurring on the inside. Ten years ago, my health crashed in the most spectacular way. Across the decade since that time, I find been have steadily regathering all of the scattered parts of myself and putting them back together in such a way that I now find I am much more than the sum of my parts. This is my journey - shared.
