"Just wanted to offer my gratitude for the information on deep pacing. It was concrete, evidence based and specific. I’ve been coping with PEM for decades and I’ve just kept pushing and pushing. The information was such a relief and so reassuring."
This is what people are saying about the DEEP Pacing presentation
"Pacing has changed my life. I spent the last 2.5 years in crash cycles, too stubborn to back off activity and actually try pacing properly until this year. I was finally able to find a balance that kept me from crashing; and with careful monitoring I can still participate in activities that give me a much better quality of life without making me sicker due to crashing over and over again. Yes, some meds do help some symptoms; but nothing has helped as well as learning to pace. Thank you for introducing me to this concept as I was very lost without it and not one Dr suggested it. They all had pushed me to do more; ultimately making me worse than I was at my onset."
"The use of stories, the use of visuals on the slides, the referrals to places for more help, the hopefulness of the approach you suggest, the accessibility of the ideas you present, the deep understanding of the patient experience... You really see deeply into the heart of the patients."
About the presenter:
Dr. Eleanor Stein, MD FRCP(C)
When I developed ME/CFS and related disorders in 1989, pacing was not a known strategy. I was determined to overcome my illness by continuing my active lifestyle and this approach was encouraged by my health care team. You can imagine how that worked. I have learned how to pace the hard way by repeated trial and error in my own life. In the 20+ years I have been facilitating self-management groups, pacing is consistently cited as the most useful skill for improved health. Yet it is often cited as the most difficult skill to put into action consistently.
What stands in the way for many is not lack of knowledge about how to pace but our reluctance to pace - our belief that pacing is giving up, our protest against the unfairness of life. I have coined the term DEEP pacing to combine effective pacing strategies and the DEEP self-care that is required to put them into action effectively. I look forward to sharing this holistic approach to pacing with you.
