Fatigue


Guest

346 views

I am so fatigued that I wish I could stay in bed all day for several days to catch up. Yesterday it really hit. I had to drive about 40 miles to the place where I was to work. When I got there, the people I was to see were all gone for the day. They start at 5, I believe. To me that's turn-over time. I managed to get home and go back to bed, and slept until my dog informed me that she was hungry. Then I played around on the computer and of course had to go to chat. Decided to watch Jay Leno's 1st 15 minutes, so left the computer on to finish an application I was starting, and woke up at 2:30 am! So, I shut off the computer and went back to bed and made it to about 7am and our morning walk. It is now 9:30 and I am ready to go back to sleep, but have to go to work. Doesn't make sense with all that sleep, although piecemeal, I shouldn't be so tired! But then, I'm a stroker and when I was told I'd sleep a lot, guess they meant from then on and on and not just initially. Any ideas of how to snap this feeling? A COLD shower may shock me too much! Maybe, just a short nap.........zzzzzzzzzz. biggrin2.gif

phyllis,

 

i forget how long sinces yours, mine has been 18 months. sleep was ALL i could do in the beginning. i STILL get more sleepy than the "old days". i force myself to go to bed at the same time even if i am not sleepy and FORCE myself to get up around the same time. it has helped.

 

however, i still have bouts of insomnia and sleepiness. so, when i am tired, i take naps. when i REALLY can't go to sleep, i get up and read. or something. although it has helped, it's not perfect. so, regular schedules seem to work best for me, albeit not perfect.

 

my best

Phyllis,

It has been three years for me and I know if I overdo it one day, then I am bone weary tired for about 2 days afterwards. It doesn't matter if I get a solid 10 hours of sleep a night.
