When you have a chronic illness or disability fatigue is often a major part of life. After all your body is working hard to overcome the effects of your illness or to compensate for lost abilities. Others cannot really understand the bone numbing kind of fatigue that often accompanies chronic illness, but we know what it's like to need a two hour nap just because you got dressed this morning. We also know what it feels like to want to get up and moving but you just cannot drag yourself out of bed. We have heard the complaints of others that we sleep all the time. And we know what it is like to care for someone who is in bed most of the time.
We hope that sharing our experiences with you will help you to develop strategies for dealing with the effects fatigue has on your life. Please feel free to share your thoughts, concerns, and strategies for coping with fatigue with us; email help@MakingLifeEasier.com.
"When one is happy there is no time to be fatigued; being happy engrosses the whole attention." ~ E. F. Benson
