Is lethargy a common after effect of brain injury?
I’m a year post CO poisoning and find it so hard to get motivated to do anything, even getting washed and shaved. I need prompting a lot of the time. All I seem to want to do is lie on the sofa all day, getting up only for a drink or some food.
I enjoy having friends around for a coffee and a chat, but don’t feel like venturing out at the moment.
I’m afraid that I’ve lost the fighting spirit which i know is so important to recovery. Having tried to fight my mental illness for thirty odd years, then suffering with ME, I’m feeling a little defeated by life to say the least.
Yet I read on here so many stories about people who were far worse off then me learning to walk, read and write again.....I feel like a bit of a failure for not being able to muster up that king of motivation and being a bit overwhelmed by my symptoms.
Sorry to be a bit of a downer but needed to share.
Any experience really appreciated.
