BC: and I dont mean Before Christ

BC …is before Chronic Fatigue. But where do I start?
I have been mulling this over for sometime now and every time i go to a new doctor, physician, homeopath, etc I repeat the same boring drivel. So…
I guess I need to go back to who I was; the person I want to be again; the person I miss; the person I am starting to forget.
Early 2008 … this was the last time I felt ME. My job was fab; I was really fit and trim. Life was wonderful. In fact I distinctly remember turning to my husband and saying , ” If I died right now, I could honestly say I am content.” Beware of what you wish for!!! Well on April 14 I was diagnosed with a C5-C6 slipped disc and surgery was indicated. Now I didnt get this injury doing anything vaguely spectacular, which is truly a tragedy. Anyway I chose bed rest and drugs as I just couldn’t think of surgery as an option. So no driving, no job, no walks in the mountain, no gym, no walking , only anti-inflammatorys and more than enough time on my hands to induce suicidal thoughts. But 6 months later and with the help of the Brave organisation I was celebrating my return to life by swimming with the dolphins in Mozambique. Well I swam with the dolphins but I also got chronic fatigue.
