Feeling Tired All The Time?
At some point in your life – whether from a prolong chronic disease like ME or Chronic Fatigue; or maybe from prolonged stress – there will come a time when you are absolutely physically and mentally exhausted.
Feeling tired all the time
You’ve taken on more and more, until, literary, there was the ‘last straw’ that knocked you over. Perhaps it was a bout of flu’ or after a long period of devoted nursing care, or burnout from overwork – and suddenly there’s part of you screaming “I can’t do any more. I don’t want to do anything! I just want to sleep”.
Your friend asks you to do a simple thing and suddenly you’re on the verge of tears and all you can say to your friend is “I can’t. I’m so exhausted I could cry. I’m so tired I feel sick”.
You feel as if you have no reserves left to draw on. Even your spirit seems broken.
If you’d been able to manage your stress levels before they overwhelmed you, perhaps you could have avoided exhaustion, or at least reduced its severity.
It’s all very well for me, sitting here typing, to tell you to use your vital energy wisely – but you can’t. Using any energy drains you. The daily effort of getting out of bed and making it to the bathroom seems to exhaust every ounce you’ve collected during the night. And it takes what little strength you have left to hold back the tears! I know – I’ve been there!
However, by using your energy resources very sparingly and wisely, you can begin to feel better. Don’t try to do ‘everything’ – be very selective about what you need to do and do everything in short bursts and then rest again.
Stress builds up slowly
Even if your exhaustion has been brought on by a bout of illness, the lead-up to the illness has come over time as your stress levels mounted. Getting to such a severe state of debilitated exhaustion has been a slow process – and so healing will be a slow process too. Be kind and gentle with yourself… and …

But not only for severe cases …
Olive will help you at the end of a busy day when you’ve been rushing around and still have 3 million things to do before bed.

I would suggest taking 4 drops of Rescue Remedy and 2 drops of Olive in a small glass of water and sip it frequently. Frequency is more important than quality.

Over to you.
As always, I love to hear from you, so please leave your comments about you and the Bach Flower Remedies.
I had a client who did not respond to Olive, Oak, Hornbeam or any other similar remedies that are often used to relieve fatigue and exhaustion.
I finally traced it to repressed unknown fear that she has been holding on for years. It was constantly draining her of her energy.
Aspen, Cherry Plum, Sweet Chestnut, White Chestnut and Walnut helped.
