So I've always been tired, like exhausted / jet lag sort of thing and always put it down to lack of sleep until about 5 years ago which leads me to me diagnosis and excision of endometriosis. The tiredness does go from time to time but no amount of sleep gets rid of it, if you get what I mean.
I've always just coped with my tiredness as I thought there wasn't much I could do. Knowing its liked to endometriosis from research leads me to think there must be other women out there that just feel this wiped out. I work full time and am allowed work from home for my flareups - which currently are only around my period and the worst is on the first day, so that's my wfh day.
Recently I've just become more upset / irritable / exhausted and tired; kind of wanting to give up on everything; I think this exhausted thing is getting to me
Anyone have any hints / tips on coping? Should I go back to my gp / specialist? I'm not on any medication and am managing all other symptoms well. I really don't want to go on antidepressants or sleep tablets. Can I suggest dropping to part time for say 1 day a week or does that seem too extreme? Has anyone had to do that?
I feel like I'm just a weakling
