My Podcast interview with Dr. Courtney Craig, May 4, 2021

In this 48 minute podcast we discuss a wide range of topics. I begin by telling the story of what I have learned in my 32 year history with ME/CFS, FM and ES. I answer some hard questions from Dr. Craig including the apparent conflict between psychiatry and ME/CFS and how self-management can possibly help in these serious bio-medical conditions.

Self-management does not cure ME/CFS, FM or ES. But what we think, feel, and do impacts biology. Neuroplasticity in particular has caught my attention. It is a living connection between the mind and the body. It allows us to plan changes to our own brains and bodies by changing behavior - amazing.

We are all awaiting transformative biological interventions for ME/CFS, FM and ES. However, even in conditions for which there are powerful biological treatments, self-management remains important. I designed my online course to fill the need for accurate disease specific self-management strategies.

I hope you enjoy the podcast. And a big thank you to Dr. Craig for offering the platform of hope.

- long haul COVID

- 10 to 30% of people who contract COVID 19 don't recover fully as expected. These lingering symptoms are referred to as "long  haul" or "Post-COVID".
- The symptoms of Post-COVID include severe fatigue, post exertional malaise, unrefreshing sleep, brain fog and unstable blood pressure - very similar to symptoms of ME/CFS.
- Number one take home message if you have long haul COVID is to PACE. This means living within your energy bank account. Try to save a bit of energy every day so the body can use it to heal.
- We hope this sensible self-management will help people with long haul COVID recover.
