    Graded Exercise - can it be beneficial?

    Hi all, after having M.E. for 19 years, my G.P. has referred me for graded exercise therapy again.  I had this years ago.  I know it's frowned upon but I'm not sure whether to go ahead with it or not.  It would involve travel and potential stress getting there, but I'm wondering whether it might be worth doing (with awareness to listen to my own body and not to mindlessly follow advice if I don't feel it's right for me).  I've never got the hang of pacing or gradually increasing my activity…
