6 months after the
Energy Excellence Course:
I was diagnosed with Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome in February 2009 after suffering from symptoms of
indescribable fatigue, pain, weakness, memory loss, unable to
concentrate to name a few symptoms.
It meant I had no choice but to
give up work as a Children‘s Intensive Care Nurse and move back home to
live with my parents, it was by no means an easy decision but the
illness took that decision out of my hands eventually.
I struggled on with the support
of friends, family and the GP. I got help from other health
professionals such as the dietician and allergy clinics and advice from
the GP and physiotherapy about energy management which helped a little
and I did begin to improve, but as soon as anything happened which
affected me emotionally or needed me to exert physically I would easily
relapse and be back to square one.
I was at this point so
desperate for an answer. I had heard about various private clinics that
claimed they could help but nothing felt quite right. Then I was trying
to Google an NHS CFS Clinic but I couldn’t remember the name of it and
up popped fatigue answers.com. I was drawn to the opening line on the
home page and knew instantly this was it, this was what I needed and
this was an answer to my prayers. But of course I did have doubts about
it, would it work and would it be a waste of money?
I spoke to various people about
it. To cut a long story short, I met a lady who had been suffering from
fibromyalgia and had accessed training in Suffolk and it turned out her
trainer had been trained by Amir and had combated her CFS, at that
point I knew this was for real and I had to go for it.
The course is one of the best
things I have ever done in my life. Mumbles itself is a beautiful place
and just being there is good for your soul! The course itself was just
a breath of fresh air. It explained why I had been feeling so rubbish
and ill which instantly made me feel better knowing that there is a
medical/scientific reason as to why this had happened to my body, an
explanation I had been unable to find, and being medically trained I
needed those answers!
Amir and Aliya then
demonstrated and explained the skills and processes to use and were
very honest in their delivery. The most important thing for me at that
time was that I lacked self confidence, was very tired and dreaded
being put on the spot; this never happened which made the course so
much more enjoyable.
By day 3 of the course, I felt
lighter, energetic, happier and so excited about the future, there was
a way out! It was great having something to interrupt the horrid
feelings and symptoms of CFS, something I thought I was going to be
stuck with for the rest of my life.
I will be honest, I still have
days that I feel a symptom trying to sneak back in but I know now how
to stop it and how to look after myself to prevent relapses. Things
have been going so well that in mid January I started looking for a job
and was lucky enough to get a great job, working as a community nurse
with the health visiting team. I still can’t believe that I am back at
work and have the energy to do it plus sometimes go out after work, its
My life has changed so
dramatically from just trying to get through everyday and worrying
about everything to now being full of life, being able to honestly
enjoy the people around me and to do all those wonderful fun things I
could only dream about doing a year ago, it’s a great feeling to have!
A big thank you to Amir and
Aliya for helping me get back to me again, however a much better
