Hi all I’m just venting and possibly looking for some guidance.
17 years ago I suffered really bad fatigue sleeping up to 20 hrs a day. Eventually I saw a consultant just before we emigrated and he just said it’s the best thing I can do but I was never given a diagnosis.
It took about four years before I recovered more or less but if I over did it I would crash and sleep for 24-36 hours at a time.
I tried to manage my energy levels. Before this all occurred my brother of 36 died of stomach cancer. We were really close.
Five years ago I nursed mug mum at home for 18months . At the same time trying to run a busy business also from home. After my mum died - at just 69 I was devastated. I tried to get my life back to some sort of normality.
6 months later I was back to the joint and muscle pain, headaches, extreme fatigue I refreshed sleep etc. Medics assumed I was depressed I didn’t think I was but was referred to mental health. I took anti depressants and paid for private counselling- just in case. Nothing changed.
Eventually I was diagnosed with ME and fibromyalgia.
Most medications didn’t help so I stopped them.
For the past two weeks I have been wiped out. I went to bed Saturday lunchtime and just got up tonight for a couple of hours.
I still have the business to run and have to travel this weekend. I don’t really know what to do. I pray this doesn’t last. Any helpful pointers would be welcomed. Thanks in advance .
