Day 1042 - Fatigue

More than just feeling tired.

Deep Fried Fatigue
There is a difference between feeling tired and being fatigued.  You can often push through being tired, but fatigue overtakes you completely.  Apparently fatigue is a mental or physical exhaustion that can be triggered by stress, mental or physical illness, medication, disease.  I know I am fatigued when I have blurred vision and can't put my arms above my head to put out the washing.  I also get very irritable and have no capacity to even hear when people are speaking.  Apparently this is a symptom of fibromyalgia (which I may or may not have).


Today I am feeling more than just tired. I am feeling fatigued. But I need to beat it. I can't give into it. If I give in, I'm Deep Fried for sure.  I'm not 100% sure when feeling tired stops and being fatigued begins, but I think I'm getting close.

  1. Ugh. I know of what you say. Right down to the not being able to listen to people speak. Rest up. This too shall pass.
