I have posted before but I would like to start a new one about symptoms. I have so many that it would take ages to list them all but the ones that are getting worse are, constant exhaustion and fatigue, aches, difficulty swallowing, brain fog, lack of memory, headaches, sleeping too much or insomnia, no amount of sleep makes me feel any different.
I get huge temperature fluctuations, night sweats, feel incredibly weak all the time and I just cannot cope with all this.
I finally made an appt for friday with the dr, a different one to see if she is any better, but i just dont know what to say to make her understand the severity. I am unemployed, have been for a year, and looking for voluntary work. I am doing a cbt course after being referred as my depression wasnt lifting, and nothing is working. I need her to listen and at least do some tests, but I am so unwell I just dont know if have the energy to fight anymore. It is affecting my whole life, and my partner is supportive but he too doesnt understand how I can sleep lots and still not feel any better. It causes arguments, we've split up, and I dont want to lose him. He is moving in with me shortly and I need to be able to function properly.
I havent worked in over a year. I WANT to work, I have tried desperately, and even getting voluntary work is near on impossible in my area..hopefully I will have something arranged soon but it is my partner who is going to have to be the main provider for now. I feel so bad about this and it again causes problems. I have a 17yr old who is refusing to go to school and he just stays in bed all day. I do not have the energy to argue with him every day. It is all such a mess. We cannot carry on like this. How can I make the dr listen and do something??
