For a few weeks now my daily fatigue has been completely debilitating. My constant complaints of insomnia have changed to constant complaints of sleepiness. My nighttime sleep has been averaging 10-12 hours a night and I wake up groggy and tired. Doing anything during the day is utterly impossible, and every part of my daily life is sorely missing my attention. My house looks like a frat house, there is nothing to eat in the fridge, and I can no longer see the floor in my laundry room.
My aches and pains have increased to point that I am starting to believe my doctor’s diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. (I can do without the “F” word diagnosis thankyouverymuch)
This overwhelming zombie-like feeling doesn’t feel like messed up thyroid levels. I also haven’t had any massive attacks of intestinal upset and purging that would make me consider low potassium. (which is a fairly common thing for me)
My freaking Addison’s Disease is just making me miserable I guess. I increased my daily steroid meds a tiny bit for a few days…it didn’t help.
The brain fog is troubling me. I forget what I am talking about in the middle of a sentence. Word searching while talking has turned some conversations into pure nonsense. I was trying to tell my sister – Mono girl – about how my internet was down yesterday, and I kept saying insurance instead of internet. It made sense to me when I was saying it! She was nice to me and didn’t make fun of me. Words right there in brain….brain won’t connect to mouth = frustrating.
Of course, none of my doctors want to even discuss these problems.
I’m going to bed.
