Some wonder what's the difference between being tired and being fatigue. When you're tired you rest or take a nap. Most of the time you feel revived and you're good again. With fatigue it doesn't matter how much sleep or rest you get. You could have 3 hrs or 8 hrs of sleep. Makes no difference. You still feel fatigue. It's like my broken iPhone charger. 6 hrs of charging my phone and it's still at 30%. Lucky for me I can buy a new charger for my phone. Wish it was that easy for me and my fatigue. Fatigue makes you feel as if you are at 30% and what you do next may put you at 10% but you keep going praying to make it through the day bc you have no other choice. Living with Lupus and Sjogren's have taught me to fully enjoy the small things in life like lunch with my daughter or watching minions with my son. I've learned to plan less and live more spontaneous...bc lupus and Sjogren's is an unpredictable illness. One minute I'm at 80% and the next minute I'm at power saver mode 20%.
