No fatigue lately

No fatigue lately

I haven’t been sleeping great. I’m up all night either using the bathroom or unable to get the right temperature. However I still wake up in the morning pretty bright eyed abs chipper. Starting each morning with some puppy love helps that situation. I’ve put in some great workouts in the AM. Yesterday I did 52 minutes. That pretty intense especially since I didn’t go to bed until after 10:00. That’s when I realized that I’ve been doing really good…

Teleconference neurologist appointment

Teleconference neurologist appointment

I have my neurologist appointment this morning. My second neurologist appointment admits the coronavirus isolation. Once again this will be a teleconference appointment as was my other one. I’m thankful that both my doctors know me so well. What would this be like if I was a new patient or something? I can’t imagine. This appointment was always scheduled as a checkup but now it is also serving as my wheelchair evaluation. I need to be seen by my doctor,…

Light at the end of the tunnel

Light at the end of the tunnel

Day two of waking up and not feeling tired. I can’t even put into words how great that is. I am starting to feel more like myself. I still was in bed by 8 yesterday and sleeping before 9. I also had no strength in my legs and had to transfer directly from my wheelchair to my bed. Yet all that is ok because I woke up peppy and smiling. I woke up in good spirits with energy and it…

Trip to the neurologist

Trip to the neurologist

I am going to my neurologist today. I needed a form filled out by him that has to be within 30 days of my last appointment. Of course my last appointment was in the beginning of July so I had to come in again. Yet this probably isn’t a bad thing because I can once again address the exhaustion. I felt so tired yesterday I got into my bed around 6. My body was just so tired I couldn’t fight…

Fatigue is never easy

Fatigue is never easy

The heat, the heat is here and it is not making life an easier. I played mahjong and I could barely hold myself upright by the end of the game and I was in AC. The heat finds it way into your bones and still manages to fatigue you regardless of where you are. I came home and collapsed. I was in bed by 9 and slept through the night until 4. I’m exhausted still. I sleep I’m exhausted, I…
