...as Gilda Radner would say.
Since my car accident, hubby coming home from overseas, the new job, the relapse I had last month, and starting the DMD, I sort of feel that I am in a better place than I've been in a long time. Most important at the moment is that the recovery from this last relapse has been the best ever. I am walking again, not perfectly but much better than after previous relapses. Everything is just so much more under control or so I thought.
So, I feel I am better much better than I've been in almost a year and then something new, something I thought I was going to excape is happening. Fatigue.
I thought it was a passing symptom, but it has been lingering now for almost a week. Its like my brain wants to go,go,go, but my body want no part of that at all. I have energy to get a few things done around the house that have not been taken care of in months and then WHAM, I am back in bed for a 2-3 hour rest because I am totally exhausted. And, I don't fall asleep right off, but just lay there thinking about what I'd rather be doing than laying in bed.
I want to mention this to the MS neuro when I see him on Monday, but am wavering on it. When I have mentioned fatigue in the past to my doctors they would tell me I was stressed out or depressed and want to throw an antidepressant my way. Perhaps this doctor will undertand what is happening. At least I should give him the benefit of the doubt as he has already proven himself to not be like the rest of his kind.
