When exercise means Post Exercise Malais

How about a show for ppl suffering from autoimmune diseases such as myalgic Encephalomyelitis?

When just changing the bed sheets means a complete physical collapse for many days.

When everyday is like a marathon, from feeding the cat to making a cup of tea?

Told to just go for a walk, which can mean PEM for weeks. I don’t think so.

I used to run, cycle and workout at the gym. I loved gardening. I really enjoyed exercise.

I am fed up with ppl telling me I should just walk for a few minutes, when I have dishes in the sink, toilet needs a clean, a vacuum would be good.

Priorities for ppl like me have to change just to survive.
