This is just me venting really. I was diagnosed about 1 1/2 years now, and have been on Urso for that long. The fatigue is still a HUGE problem, and it makes me such an unhappy person. My neurologist says I also have Fibromyalgia... if that's a real thing...I'm always so moody, and temperamental because of my extreme exhaustion, and pain. I have 2 young children at home which is tiring enough without the autoimmunes. I used to be so bubbly, fun, and the life of the party. Now I'm just miserable, and tired. I don't have the energy to do anything. A trip to the grocery store is literally a project. It's affecting my home life, and I feel like I'm squandering my time with my kids (which by the way are at GREAT ages) and husband because of my bad mood ALL the time. Even if I take a nap during the day, whether it's 30 minutes, or 3 hours. The pain in my joints just makes it all worse too. Around 5 p.m. every night I can barely move. Which then makes me even more tired, mentally and physically. I just want my old self back, because I don't even recognize this version of me at all.
