I have always found Pacing and finding a Baseline extremely difficult, this app takes the hard work out of both and is helping me enormously!! An excellent app!!
Personalisable and relevant, Unlike a paper diary, I have never forgotten to complete this one. I email myself the results and have a log to show my doctors. The baseline is interesting as I tend to overestimate how much I can do then crash – this app calculates it for you and helps you avoid the push-crash of ME/CFS.
Very useful for help with pacing. I’ve had ME for 22 years so am experienced at pacing. Have used paper diaries in past. This is much easier to use, gives feedback and sets baseline, let’s you see what you’re really doing eg sleep pattern, how often totally resting easily from colour. Thank you. Recommend to anyone with ME
Thank you for spending the time to put together such a great and helpful app. I really am very impressed by this app and how easy it is to use and understand.
This CFS/ME diary is a great tool if, like me you suffer with this debilitating condition. I hope it gets into the hands of all ME patients who need all of the help possible to do what it takes to improve their condition.
Just to let you know I love my app!!! Great to use, very comforting, it also helps to know that there are people who take M.E seriously enough to design something so helpful. xxx

I wrote this article in late 2011, while coming to terms with a recent diagnosis of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Looking back, the article was an attempt to process the reasons why I had yet to receive any treatment or treatment advice from the National Health Service (NHS). I have worked […]
How many symptoms does a person who suffers from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis /Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have? Answer multiple by definition of diagnosis. Do they change in severity? Do they ever alleviate? Do old symptoms return and new symptoms arrive? I bet the answer to most, if not all of these questions is YES, YES, YES! When […]
Continued…….. My family have direct experience of the symptoms and disability a dairy allergy can produce. My wife is lactose intolerant. Even though she knew drinking milk and eating certain cheeses caused her to become bloated, she would often sneak a bit in here and there. It was not until both of us agreed to […]
Continued………… Malabsorption is a form of malnutrition caused by the small intestines incapacity to absorb vital nutrients from the food we eat. This process happens when the small intestine becomes ineffective due to the villi (cells lining the small intestine) becoming flattened. The villi cell structure has a very efficient use of surface area through […]
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) presents with an anthology of symptoms. Each symptom has a connective cause, which when investigated can be understood and treatment applied. Causes can include oxidative stress, mitochondria dysfunction, food intolerance, leaky gut syndrome, hypoglycaemia, hormone imbalances, reoccurring viral infections or environmental toxic stress. The digestive system is the first area […]
