I've written about fatigue plenty before. But I never tire of bleating away, moaning about my condition.
Fatigue, I hate it. Lunchtime, on Monday, I was in the elevator with a colleague.
Me - "Do you feel tired?"
Him - "No".
Only three hours into the day, but 15 years into daily, constant fatigue. Wake up tired, tired all day, go to sleep tired.
I've been easing off on the Modafinil lately. Just to give my brain a rest. I find that 4-AP-3-MeOH and Piracetam does a half-way decent job of keeping me functioning. It used to be that work was akin to a waking nightmare, I was so fatigued. Tired ain't the word.
I can battle through the day now. The only thing is when I get home and all the medication starts to wear off, I get short tempered. I just can't take loud noise, almost to the point where I have mild synesthesia. I can see sounds. I've been like this since I was a kid.
Is this just me?
I'm very interested in hearing how bad (or good) everyone else's fatigue levels are, how you deal with it, etc.
I've never had any neurologist take my fatigue seriously. Amantadine was the best they could do. I am writing this at the end of a 2 year, daily Modafinil binge. 2 years, every day. If anything, I am having a break from it just so I can restart in a couple of weeks time and feel the joy of being truly awake again.
