Please send me support. I had a nasty virus over the weekend and my energy is now super low. I feel like crying. I am having lots of anxiety, worried about low energy. Please send supportive words to me.

I hope you feel better! Being sick sucks!

You have nothing to worry about, Dolphin80, believe me. I had a nasty virus recently, I too felt depleted of energy. It's a natural thing for the body to feel low in energy after a viral attack, your body has been using your energy to fight the virus so your stocks are low. Before long, with rest, your energy level returns to normal, as mine did.

Perhaps because your anxiety is high you over react to things and magnify them out of all proportion. We all do it, you are no exception.

The important thing to do is to recognise it when it happens and not to respond with needless fear.

If you want to cry then cry, go somewhere that others won't bother you. Crying is a safety valve, you will feel better after.

But I repeat, the low energy at this time is perfectly natural, it will not last. You'll be boogying down the nightclub with the best of them again before long😁

Thank you very much. I’m worried about being able to go to work tomorrow.

If your boss is understanding then say you still need another day or two to recover. If not, take a couple if ibupropin and go in and tough it out. You'll probably feel a lot better once you get going. Hope your energy levels return soon.

Hi Dolphin.

I know if I get viruses and colds etc I struggle such a lot coping with every day decisions, it totally wipes me out...it does affect my mental health such a lot...tiredness is the big thing...

For me, I was totally exhausted as my body was fighting whenever I’ve had a virus...or been jet lagged, [which has the same feeling]..it took time but I did get my energy back...it built up over time..

Hello. I'm sorry you werent feeling well.

I used to get sick every flu season with the flu for weeks at a time. Id get better for a few weeks and catch something new. This lasted for year's. So I totally understand how you feel. Idk if the anxiety is just related to the illness, but if it is, just know your body will heal and when it does, for me at least, it was a very good feeling that first day I started feeling better. The low energy is your bodys way of saying you need rest. Make sure to get plenty of rest and drink lots of water or gatorade. Just make sure you know if you get to a point where you need to see a Dr.

Hang in there.

You'll get better soon
