Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Work

Last Update: July 25, 2018

I don't know how many people in the WA community suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) but I suspect that there are at least a few of us, as affiliate marketing is an ideal way for people with chronic illness to achieve financial success.

I am not suggesting that everybody with CFS can do this as obviously some people are too ill to do any work and your health must always be your priority. However, if you have periods of recovery where some work is possible, Wealthy Affiliate is ideal.

So what are the advantages?

You can work as many hours as you want. Having had CFS for many years I know achieving a balance between resting and activity is vital. Even if I have a crisis and have to stop working on this altogether I know I can return to it when I am ready.

I personally aim to do about 10 hours a week affiliate marketing work. This may not seem much but adds up to 500 hours a year! Imagine how much you can achieve in 500 hours.

Of course, it will take longer to see results than those who can do 8 hours a day but this is not a race. For me my aim is to create wealth for when I retire so I don't need to make money overnight.

To me, another advantage is having a challenge! Having something to aim for makes me want to get up in the morning and people with CFS will understand how important this is!

Finally financial stress can only make CFS worse and knowing I am doing something about my financial situation really does make a difference.

Good morning, Chronic Fatigue.Syndrome is something I know little about but I understand the symptoms. In my own situation I had found my diet was culprit to chronic fatigue which limited my activity, affected my sleep efficiency, nearly ended my life while driving behind the wheel.

As to the focus of your post,I do think your direction and suggestion to others for the freedom WA pursuits wil give us is truly on point.


Than you for your insight Hazel, and best wishes.

Hi David

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I have been looking at diet and it certainly has helped. It is amazing what an effect food can have on us.

Hopefully more research will be done on CFS. I think things are slowly changing but there is still a long way to go.

Wishing you continuing improvement with your health.

Hi Hazel,

I am so happy I have stumbled upon your blog. I have not been very active recently at WA due to moving to a new career opportunity, and wondering if I will ever find the time to interact here as well as keep my site going.

Reading this has reminded me that it is a work in progress and as you say, may take longer to yield results, but will benefit the retirement plan in the end.

Thank you,
Debs

Thanks for your reply, Debbie.

I think a lot of people want to see results quickly which is only natural. However those of us with restricted time available need to realise that this will take time and that every small task we complete means we are closer to our goal.
