Hi motzie,

It sounds like fatigue, thats exactly how i would describe a day that my fatigue is at its worst.

It makes me so low i cannot talk to people as i would just cry.

My other half is understanding at points but when my fatigue is bad as they just dont get it.

Just take it easy and everything you dont get done today will be still there another day when you do feel better to do them, Pacing is the key to try and keep the fatigue at bay but sometimes you just have to give in and stop.

You rest and hope you arent feeling low for too long.

Thanks Kel for your comment.. the tears are hard to stop poss feeling sorry for is good to know that other plp understand...soft hugs & take carexxx.


Hey Motzie, give me back my elephant! I know how you feel, I went to be really early last night and woke up about 10.30 only because the dog was sitting on me! I rang my husband as he was a bit incredulous that I'd managed to sleep for so long. He is usually good so I was a bit taken aback.

When I have a good day the bad days always hit me hard and unfortunately there are more of them. You take care x
