View Full Version : I Cleaned My House Yesterday

I know you're probably thinking--SO--but this is a major feat for me. You see, I've suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome my entire life. Nothing worked and I found myself always tired and as a consequence, doing house work was at the bottom of my list of tasks to accomplish.
I would live at a place a couple of years and then it would get unbearable for me and then I would move. Finally bought a condo and thought I would like to stay here for a long time, but energy levels were still too low to keep the place up.
Now, only two weeks eating Raw and my energy is through the roof!!!! I cleaned my condo last night, cleaned my desk at work and will tackle the car this weekend. I know that this may sound trivial to some, but this is a MAJOR accomplishment for me and the increased energy means I can finally start living my life and doing all those thing I've always wanted to accomplish with my life.

Wow! I think that is fantastic! And no it is not a small thing! Chronic Fatique Syndrome is awful, so to have that much energy is fantastic!
Ah, hmm, oh, hummm....Now, can you come and clean mine. ;) LOL

That's awesome! Good for you! :) It must be very liberating to be able to do these things without the fatigue.
Sometimes I have dreams where I can't move/run/walk as quickly or easily as I want (like my body is submerged in molasses or something), and I can imagine what an awful feeling it must be to live like that full time...

wow, your story is amazing! 2 weeks, what a turnaround.
i've been there, so energetically depleted that i couldn't stay on top of the household stuff, and the vicious cycle of depression that follows. and now? i am able to keep it all together, and living in a comfortable, clean, and cozy environment helps feed my energy -- an upward spiral instead of a downward one, thanks to raw foods!
congratulations, and i can't wait to hear about what you will manifest NEXT with your raw energy!
see you around the boards...

For all your thoughful replies. I can finally say: LIFE IS GOOD!!!! and really mean it.
And Barbie2 and alicia, maybe after I'm Raw a little longer I can stop by and help with the cleaning at your places (Tee, Hee), though I'm in California and that is a looooong trip to Boston, alicia. LOL!

YAY! Congratulations! That is wonderful!
I also recovered from CFS (and Fibro and several other conditions) and I remember how THRILLING it was when I started having energy here and there to start cleaning. It was amazing. I know that it is such a blessing to have your life back! Good for you!!! You deserve it!!!!

Congrats! And now that you have so much practice and have it perfected....my house next???:D:p

Kudos to you! That's very encouraging to hear- I hope I bode as well as you are doing once I have been raw for awhile! (still new here). That is one thing I have heard....once your body is clean, you will start to want to make everything around you clean as well. Cool concept!

Congratulations!!!! I'm so glad you are feeling so much better!
I now have the energy, but not the inclination to clean my house. Wanna come by here sometime???;)
