So today I slept and slept and slept. Now I find myself awake. This can be pretty standard with someone who is chronically ill but the fatigue has been incredibly worse.
Can anyone else relate to this?
When I first started taking my thyroid meds, I noticed the difference almost immediately. My fatigue was so much better that I started to feel more like myself again. It was amazing!
Now almost 2 years later, I am back to square one again.
Any tips for this fatigue?
With the fatigue comes shame and embarrassment. You don’t want people like your friends, family or significant other to think you’re just being lazy since they don’t understand fatigue and they just think your tired. Let me just say the fatigue I deal with is not just tired. When your whole body feels like it weighs a ton and it’s hard to get up just to use that bathroom, that is fatigue not just tired. I would love to just be tired.
