First Assume It’s Distress

The phenomenon of being over-fatigued—that is, having recorded fatigue build up to the point where even a little new fatigue triggers an immense amount of recorded fatigue—is very real, and we’ve been working on it for a few years.

I propose an assumption here. I propose that any difficulty we meet in these later stages of re-emergence be automatically assumed to be something that needs contradiction. That with any problem that seems to be fouling up our lives, throwing us back into the garbage out of which we so painfully crawled—any physical collapse or setback—our first assumption be that it’s something that needs contradiction and the resulting discharge, and that we rigorously attack in that direction before we resign ourselves to a life of invalidism.
