Hi Charlie4ever

I feel more exhausted mentally and physically most days always tired and yeah do fall asleep for a few minutes some times, mainly when ready. This is usually come evening tho.

All the best keeleybee


Hello Charlie4,

I hope you're ok.

All I can say (as I'm not officially diagnosed) is that supermarket shopping completely wrecks me now. Can I ask and this may sound silly.. But do you shop in tesco? I have worked out that the lighting or something in a lot of tesco stores seems to drain the life out of me, gives me terrible headaches and generally spaces me out or stresses me out for a good few hours after ive been. Sounds weird and it took quite a while for me to recognise a pattern.

I'd be interested to know?

Sorry for my random input 😁

I'm on the same dose of sertraline and the pill for hormones and anxiety related to my cycle.. Not on painkillers so can't compare on that.

Best wishes

I am so genuinely sorry to read that and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck.

All my hopes and dreams for you
