So, I'm dealing with fatigue and depression. About three days after my last treatment that might help the fatigue... I find that I'm sick. Friday I felt like crap; Saturday, I stayed in bed 80+% of the time and learned that the Harry Potter books are good, light reading (hadn't read any of 'em until now). Sunday, the same, but I went out for chinese food to get protein and vegetables in my system. Today, the same, but I went to Target so I could finally brush my teeth with actual *toothpaste* (rather than baking soda - a decent emergency substitute, especially if you follow up with a fluoride rinse), and other necessities. |
I'm really (scary thought) hoping I can get to work tomorrow.
From another depression sufferer: good luck!
Thank you - it seems (two weeks later) that things are getting better, though it's a bit scary how many "I should respond today" days slipped away from me, there.
"I should respond today" days slip by me like mad. I finally fulfilled a June request that took just a moment yesterday. I think i have a similar February request sitting in the back of my email queue....
Ugh, not fun. Really hope things improve soon.
Thank you - I think they have, though it was a longer journey than I'd hoped :-).
Is it possible your fatigue and depression are actually a bug? Fatigue and depression are both legitimate conditions and I would not doubt you but there are various things going around, one of which make me feel very tired and lightheaded/dizzy and depressed...also triggered a fibro flare...I knew that it was a real bug though.... in any case, feel better. *hug*
Well, I know that I have a fatigue problem. I also know I have to be careful about depression. But that's what I meant - I got sick, which caused me to feel awfully fatigued, just when my medicine should have been fixing it. So, it wasn't that my meds weren't working - it was that I had something else to make me feel awful.
Now, I think everything's stabilized. I hope so.
I hope you're starting to feel better by now. I understand the depression thing all too well; I hope you're doing better with it soon.
Thankfully, today, it seems a lot better. Hopefully, next time it won't take a full two weeks (plus a bit) to get through the rough patch :-).
