  1. I am lying on the couch reading through posts trying to become more positive about my recovery. Like so many other people, I was a very fit, active person with a full time career and a full life with grown up children and two young grand children. I was told it was my fitness level (triathlons and half marathons etc) that saved me. I became ill mid-July of this year and have been signed off work since, having huge problems with fatigue. Last week I began a slow phased return to work and then spent most of the weekend sore, uncomfortable and in bed. I do try to find the positive in everything and know that I needed to slow down and look after myself more. I have had time to think about what is important in life and re-think how I will approach work. However, I am finding it very difficult to gauge just what I CAN do without becoming completely washed out. Family and friends are mostly sympathetic but don't really understand just what I am feeling. Feel quite pathetic to be honest! The emotional roller coaster, in addition to the physical one, is also something I hadn't expected. I don't think I fully appreciated just how ill I was. Feel a little apprehensive when I read of so many people who still don't feel 'normal' even several years down the path to recovery, but glad UK Sepsis Trust is here. I would feel even more isolated if I hadn't found it.
