thank you for this marvelous thread. it couldn’t have been posted at a more appropriate time.

fatigue is a constant with me. currently what exacerbates the situation for me: heat and humidity. the combination of these two things, particularly the humidity, is absolutely toxic and wipes me out. i feel like i’m walking under water and being dragged down……

last friday, after working a full week (which also included two visits to doctors)through a haze of complete fatigue and exhaustion, i crawled into bed at 7 p.m. and didn’t get up until sunday morning. i felt like i had experienced a complete cidp breakdown. mentally and physically i was totally wiped out.

for the past 5 years since being diagnosed with this i’ve always felt like i have a certain amount of “good hours” per day available to me before i fatigue out. i try to be careful about doling these out each day.

i find that drinking lots of water, eating more low fat protein and try to cut down on the carbs at lunch. too many carbs at lunch really seems to push the old fatigue button and can make me sleepy…..
