Fatigue…

Hot damn the fatigue slammed me this past week. I always have some level of it but, this was way beyond that level. It was hard to function and hard to think but I had to anyway. I find when it’s this bad I get overwhelmed really easily. Anyone else? I usually have a number of people messaging or texting me throughout my days, and the phone going off all the time was driving me nuts.

It’s even harder when it’s happening while I’m trying to sleep. And with all that’s going on, I can’t really unplug.

I think and HOPE it’s lifted a little bit as of tonight but wow it’s debilitating.

I’m guessing I crashed from the insane busyness of the past couple of weeks but there wasn’t a choice.

It’s so hard having to function every day as though I’m not sick, when I’m sick.

When people get the flu it wipes them out and they go to bed, rest and recover.

Not only do we not get to go to bed, or rest, we never recover. It only gets worse and then we have to live as though we’re fine.

I don’t know about you guys, but when things get crazy busy for me, I usually get hit after the fact with a flare. I always have pain but I get hit with debilitating pain and fatigue.

Sometimes it’s so after the fact that I can’t even link it to any one thing.

There’s so much guilt attached to it too, but I’m learning to self talk myself out of that.

And this is part of why I’m a CrankyPants.

That’s all I have the energy to blog tonight. Stay tuned for more about a serious subject regarding the possibility of reporting a Dr.

How are all of you doing?
