Patience is a word that comes up a lot when you're living with chronic fatigue. There's a lot of situations to practice it - waiting for a diagnosis, waiting for an appointment, waiting at the appointment (I've had several waits lasting multiple, multiple hours), waiting for the latest difficulty to wear off, doing pacing, waiting to do something you enjoy but can't because you've run out of time, and so on. Sometimes time runs very slowly. Now think of yourself as a patient person and this is the opportunity to practice it, live it, understand it and totally comprehend it. There is a certain nobility to be extracted from it.
