I'm learning that even the slightest stress causes me to get exhausted. Life is full of stress without even trying. I struggle to find that middle ground in handling the stress that normal life hands me and still be able to function. I am able to keep basic cleaning done and grocery shopping with my husband's help. But some 6days that gets to be too much when unexpected stress pops up.
I still carry extra O2 when taking a trip so never fight a backup. Try breaking up your activities over a few days and see if that is better with less fatigue. Hmmmmm Stress. We all have some. My favorite answer is: "What part of your responsibility has now made this my priority". After awhile my stress level is manageable. Let me introduce you to the word "NO". Time for you to be the number 1 in your house hold. Campaign Get rid of Stress! Judy
I'm just seeing this post. Earlier today I was lying on the couch and said "I don't know why I'm so exhausted" my mom replied, "Kelly, it's Friday. You're always this tired the day after your rehab but Friday the week catches up." Before she said that I was very discouraged and a little on the worried side. Then seeing you post reminded me that I'm not alone. I also have to rest after what used to be a normal task. Some days are much harder than others. Im learning my limits more and more. If it's a rehab day I try to avoid big things like yard work, bigger shopping trips etc. My family and friends are also picking up on my limits and reminding me to slow down and rest when I need to. Hang in there!
It's hard to change our ways in life. Especially when we have constant health problems. Love is sharing. Care giving is caring. Great to be loved and give love. Have a loving day. God Blessings
When I feel that fatigue hit me. Then I know that I have rest. So I read, nap and watch a good movie. Take care of yourself!
