FATIGUE?????????????????????   WHEN I STARTED MY QUIT, THE FIRST 3 DAYS, I HAD ENDLESS ENERGY.

FOLLOWED BY CRYING OVER TV PROGRAMS. THEN TOTAL EXHAUSTION AND I COULD HAVE SLEPT AROUND THE CLOCK....IF THE PHYSICAL BODY WOULD ALLOW ME TO STAY IN BED THAT LONG.....

 

THEN, I THOUGHT I WAS PAST THAT.....I REALIZE I'VE DONE ALOT HERE SINCE MARCH 8TH. THAT WAS 1ST. FULL DAY HOME.......THE FATIGUE HAS RETURNED AND IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!! HOW LONG DOES THIS LAST????? HAVEN'T HAD A COLD. HAD FLU LAST FALL. SINUS INFECTION WAS MONTHS AGO. MY CHRONIC PAIN LEVEL WAXES AND WANES FROM DAY TO DAY. I AM MEDICATION SENSITIVE AND USE AS MANY ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES AS POSSIBLE. I HOPE TO DITCH BP MEDS WHEN FURTHER OUT ON MY JOURNEY.

 

I HAVE DISCOVERED THE HIGH ENERGY, I ALWAYS HAD ...EVERYONE, WANTED SOME OF IT...WASN'T TRULY ME!  IT WAS  MY DRUGS OF CHOICE!!!!!    COFFEE AND SMOKES!!!!!!   BOTH LEGAL FOR SALE AND BOTH DOING ME IN.............

 

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A NIGHT OWL.....EVEN AS A CHILD...I DON'T KNOW, WHAT IS NORMAL, ANYMORE..?????

I GO TO BED 2-3 HRS. EARLIER AND SLEEP 1-3 HRS. LATER..........THE TIME CHANGE DIDN'T HELP ME,EITHER!

DOES THIS FATIGUE COME AND GO IN ROUNDS WITH OLDER WOMEN???????????????? I ALREADY DEAL WITH CFS THAT GOES WITH MY FIBROMYALGIA AND ARTHRITIS. SEVERAL INJURIES THAT THE FALL OUT IS WITH ME EVERYDAY ....STILL COLD UP HERE,NEW SNOWS, AND SPRING HASN'T UNFOLDED YET.  THE COLD TAKES ALOT OF ENERGY FOR ME TO JUST MAKE THE DAYS.

 

I KNOW, IF I DON'T SLEEP WELL, MY DAYS ARE MUCH HARDER. I HAVE MORE CONCENTRATION ISSUES. ACCOMPLISH LESS.....USUALLY DRAGGING BY TIME I'M SERVING SUPPER.HUBBY HELPS WITH KITCHEN MESS....I'M TRYING TO RELAX AND GO WITH THE FLOW. I JUST DON'T WANT TO BE SLEEPING 12 HRS. OUT OF EVERY 24...........

 

ANY IDEAS?????????????? HOW TO FIGHT THIS????????????? I DO, DECAF COFFEE THESE DAYS. I DECAFED MYSELF,MONTHS BEFORE THE QUIT. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO DESIRE TO LIGHT UP.........

I EAT A HEALTHY DIET......MY EXERCISE ROUTINE IS FALLING APART BECAUSE I AM POOPED BEFORE I FINISH THE CHORES I HAVE TO ADDRESS.  ALL WINTER IT WAS TOTALLY ABOUT MY HEALTH AND MAZY'S

NO MAN TO COOK AND CLEAN FOR...WASN'T MUCH FOR LAUNDRY OR CLEANING.......
