Running on Empty
I’m honestly too tired to even post right now. I had no idea that fatigue was going to get so bad that being awake for more than 4 hours at a time seemed like a long time. I sleep from about 10pm until 10am at least, if not Noon. Then I’m up only long enough to do a few simple house chores or read a book and then I have to take a nap. Cooking dinner requires much more energy than you’d think, which is followed by a nap, or sometimes I try to tough it out until 10pm like tonight.
It’s hard to do anything, or get anything done. I can’t commit to doing anything even as simple as playing a video game, because I don’t have the attention span or the energy to see it through.
We’ve really truly entered the “Dark Ages” now of this treatment. I’m so relieved that I’m not working, but at the same time I wish I had something to focus my mind on something that wasn’t sickness-related. Right now I’m too tired to even keep writing. So off to bed and we’ll try this again tomorrow!
