Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia - Embrace Your Sensitive Side
As a former sufferer of hypoglycaemia, adrenal fatigue and various allergic conditions I often asked myself 'why me?' I sometimes wish that I'd known then what I know now as it would have made it so much easier. I am here to offer you hope that you are not alone.
It is suggested that the majority of people with fatigue disorders are sensitive people. Can you recognise yourself here?
Are you easily overwhelmed by such things as bright lights, strong smells, coarse fabrics, or sirens nearby?
Do you get rattled when you have a lot to do in a short amount of time?
Do you make a point of avoiding violent movies and TV shows?
Do you need to withdraw during busy days, into bed or a darkened room or some other place where you can have privacy and relief from the situation?
Do you make it a high priority to arrange your life to avoid upsetting or overwhelming situations?
Do you notice or enjoy delicate or fine scents, tastes, sounds, or works of art?
Do you have a rich and complex inner life? When you were a child, did your parents or teachers see you as sensitive or shy?

If you recognise yourself here IT IS NOT BAD THING. It means that you are one of only 15-20% of the population, a special group. Without sensitive people the world would be a harsher place. You have the rare ability to know what people need, to be there for them, to care for people ' unconditionally. Your gifts are special, unique and selfless. In exchange for all your wonderful gifts you are sensitive to the harsher things in this world. You are sensitive to foreign substances and environmental pollutants.
You may worry forever about things people have said and they can eat you up inside. Too many things bombarding you everyday has left you weak and unable to cope. As you develop symptoms of fatigue you don't have the energy to carry on your special work anymore and you feel even more detached.
Rue Hass encourages you to remember your ideal qualities; these are featured on her website intuitivementoring.com
Internally deeply caring
Deeply committed to the positive and the good
On a mission to bring peace to the world
Strong personal morality
Often make extraordinary sacrifices for someone/something you believe in
If you're suffering right now I urge to you look for what you could get out of this situation. You rediscover reading, self-help books are so inspiring, getting back with nature would help a sensitive person to ground themselves again. Could you use this opportunity to retrain or somehow find a way of helping other sensitive people? You need to allow yourself time to recover and your energy can only pick up if you've allowed yourself some time away from the noise, people, pollutants, demands etc. You're not odd, just because the majority of the population seem to cope. You're not odd ' you're special.
So go forward and nurture your sensitive side. It took me years to build myself back up again and I wish I had understood all about sensitive people at the time. Don't dismiss what I've told you as unbelievable and impossible.
