Tiffiny continued: ‘I don’t know, I just feel really like, “Is this life? Is this it?
‘I’m so sick of it. I’m sure everyone feels the exact same [way]’.
The personal trainer then showed fans her left arm, which is still in a splint after recent reconstructive surgery on her wrist.

‘My hand is killing me, I can’t do anything for myself,’ she said, before adding that the ‘news is getting to me’.
In her video caption, Tiffiny explained she was ‘feeling anxious about the week ahead. No kinder. No playgrounds. I feel for the kids.’
She and comedian Ed share one child, a three-year-old son named Arnold.

After her recent diagnosis with chronic fatigue syndrome, Tiffiny last month shared the identity of the secret AFL trainer helping her through the ‘horrendous’ illness.
Emma is known for her work with the Richmond footy club and is considered a ‘key component’ in their three premiership wins in 2017, 2019 and 2020.

Tiffiny said that acceptance was a massive part of her struggle with chronic fatigue syndrome, and that’s where her mindfulness coach came in.
‘That’s what Emma’s helping me with, the acceptance of my diagnosis because then you can move forward with little tiny improvements,’ she explained.
The celebrity trainer reached the point where she was hospitalised ‘multiple times’ but her acceptance enabled her to take steps to regain her strength and fitness.

Tiffiny revealed she can now do ‘three to seven’ push-ups and said it’s ‘a huge improvement’ from before when she would get ‘really sick’ if she tried to exercise.
Emma explained that concentrating on smaller steps was key to Tiffany’s recovery.
‘Chronic fatigue can change your life and ruin your life. But the quicker we can turn around the internal story that Tiff was telling herself, and pick up the focus off the illness, we can put it on what Tiff can do,’ she said.

‘Somedays for Tiff, what she could do is she could just breathe and count her breath and that’s something so small, yet so powerful. It gave her a break from all of those internal stories that are keeping her stuck,’ Emma added.
The best part about Tiffiny’s recovery was when she was able to play in the park again with her son, Arnold.
She believes that ability has given her the ‘confidence’ to continue pushing forward and ‘achieve other goals’ while battling her illness.
