Good morning everyone. Last week I put on a post about my brothers accident 5 yrs ago which has left him disabled from the neck down & his wife left him. My Mum & I have said we will look after him.
I am very ashamed to say his house is/was very dirty.
Anyway, my Mum, Dad, Aunt & a cousin have all been in from the wknd getting it all cleaned up. They went behind my back & did not tell me they where doing it because they felt it would be too much for me. To be honest I am now really glad they did. I dont know if its been the stress of worrying about it but I now have the worst fatigue I have ever had.
I had to go to bed on Sunday as I felt so tired & its now Wednesday & I am still here. I can honestly sware on my sons life I have never had such tiredness like this in my life. I am worried now because I have said that I would do my share of looking after my Brother Thurs - Sunday. All I have to do is shave him, get him his breakfast, give him his tablets & leave him with a drink until 1.30 tgen make his lunch, careres come in again in the afternoon to check on his urinary & colostomy bag. I would then make him dinner & sit until carers come back to put him into bed at 8lm & thats the day over.
However, I dont know if its the worrying about him has brought this on or not
I have never felt so tired in all my life, I am sleeping & wakening over & over again. I cant even get up to cook myself dinner. I am just living on Toasrva diluted juice. I know I have to eat & drink & thats the best I can do. Its Wednesday & I feel no better. I know if I tell my Mum she will sayvshe will do it.
I am worried that this will linger on as I have never felt tiredness like it in all my life. I have bedn trying to do this post from 8ish this morning & its now 10.15am.
Does anyone have any suggestions to help wake me up & give me energy. I am finding it hard to make it to bathroom & kitchen.
