    Fatigue can be such a burdensome experience. I can only understand from the aspect of recovering from being ill, but it must be tough to ensure chronic fatigue along with the other symptoms of autoimmune diseases. Having self compassion, eating well, getting enough sleep, exercising regularly and preparing beforehand are all great strategies, ven for those not suffering from any chronic conditions. I think it’s a great preventive measure. Great post. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Yes, that’s actually a good way to imagine it. That sort of fatigue can come anytime because we were exposed to some trigger and for women it gets even more complex due to the hormones rollercoaster that menstruation brings 💚

    Thank you, Vanessa, for sharing these insights into autoimmune diseases. A topic I’m not as familiar with as I should, in order to understand the people around me better.
    I do understand the impact fatigue can have on a person, as I can have pretty heavy headaches. Luckily out kind of outgrew my migraines from childhood. I now take extra care to reduce my fatigue and your tips can really help. The preparing can take away a lot of the excess thoughts.

    1. Hey Benny, it’s definitely something to have in mind when dealing with people who struggle with autoimmune diseases. I’m glad you overcame the migraines. They are life-draining, and also a nudge that we need to reduce stress and toxins. Preparing helps a lot, it’s one of the reasons I try to line up blogs and content for the long run. Thanks for your thoughtful comment! 🙌

    I also think that auto immune is genetic, and rare cell mutations too, independent of environmental factors. Because autoimmune diseases types are a lot. Sleep is must for our bodies. Exercise upto 2 to 3 days a week is an average healthy threshold too from what I learned. I also think healthy diet especially is one of the ways to a better healthy lliving. I wish you ease. Great topic and post. Xx

    1. Genetics can definitely play a role, many cases have a family history. Thanks for pointing that out, Isa 🧡

    This is such a helpful post! I’m lucky that I don’t suffer from an auto-immune disorder but as a nurse I have certainly cared for many that do. Great advice! Thanks for sharing.
