Chronic Fatigue Sucks

on March 7, 2013

I slept last night.  Yay me.  I’m still tired today.  Booooooo!  It is 1 in the afternoon and the only things I’ve managed beyond eating, drinking and taking my meds is taking a shower and straightening the bed.  Today is a beautiful day but the storm coming in tomorrow is already making me ache.  I forced myself to shave so I could wear capri’s and a tank top but I’m not sure it was worth it.  I figured I’d be okay because I wasn’t washing my hair today forgetting that I try not to shave in the shower because it is dangerous for me to balance and wield a sharp object at the same time.  Yesterday I stabbed myself with a razor blade and I was sitting down.  Last week I cut myself with a rotary cutter when I tried to use my finger as a stopping point.  What was I talking about again?  Hang on a sec while I scroll back up.  Oh yeah.  Now my arms are shaking from the effort to type this because simply grooming myself is too much for me today.  Looks like I’m conserving the energy I don’t have today for picking the kids up from school.

    So sorry it was a bad day for you today… I can completely relate – had a very rough day myself. Wish I could share some words of wisdom for the times that energy is in such short supply, but the only way I get through sometimes is by just taking it moment by moment so I probably shouldn’t try to offer advice. 🙂 I hope that tomorrow is so much better for you!

    i know what you mean about being dangerous to shave in shower, i swapped to using an electric shaver and find im much safer with that 🙂

    hope you feel bit better soon!

    I sit down on a plastic seat when I shower, but still find that drying myself is exhausting.

Keep it positive...
