It's Always Somtehing...

...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.

Mention it! It won't hurt anything to say it out loud (remind me of that next time I need a little push, please).
Good luck with the appointment, let us know how it goes.  Get some rest. You deserve it.

Thanks wadeheather I think you are right about mentioning it.  And, of course I will give you that same nudge next time you are headed to the doctor and need to speak up too.  I hope you have a very good day today, me too.  :)
