Good Morning, i am new to this so any help would be appreciated.
I recently put a post up about my journey to being diagnosed with fibro where i had alot of comments and help which i cannot be more thankful for.
However my main issue at the moment (apart from the pain) is the constant battle with fatigue. Despite any pain i am in i refuse to be bed ridden or work part time, i need money to finance my future therefore i work full time in an office 9 hours a day, i am up at 6 in the morning and i don't get home until at least 6:30 at night (traffic in centre birmingham is a nightmare). These are very long days for me and i struggle constantly, baring mind i am only 20 for a normal person my age these days wouldn't be a problem but for me its a painfully and drowsy nightmare. I find in the morning getting up is a struggle maybe thats because im nor much old than the 'teenage years' but ive always been a morning person up until about a year ago i used to be able to spring out of bed, i cant anymore. Then driving to work im tired which i know is dangerous and its not uncommon for me to have to drive with the windows open to keep me awake or even pull over to wake up. Then work, i am okay for a few hours around 11-12 i struggle i have actually fallen asleep at work thankfully its just me an my boss in the office and she just laughs it off and gives me a 5 min break. No matter what i drink or eat i cannot stay awake and its making me worry about my future in my job. I am currently looking for a job more physical where its business and admin based (this is what i'm qualified in) but i love the job i have now so it would be a shame to leave.
Does anyone taken vitamins or anything to help them battle their fatigue, any recommendations would be so helpful!
Thank you x
