exhausted is a better word. Not only can you be sleepy tired but it's physically hard to do anything like go to the store etc Walking to the end of the driveway can be impossible some days

I can’t even keep up with things in the house. I really don’t know what to do. I was diagnosed with CFS a year after fibromyalgia. It seems as though it’s getting worse. I don’t know if it’s that or I push myself to the limit everyday to try to take care of my family, house and self. It’s hard and I still can’t do it all. I look around and see all the things I need to do and it’s a bit depressing. I feel drained everyday sometimes I wake up like this and all day long. Not being able to sleep enough doesn’t help. I wished I knew how to manage sleep and this better to feel like I’m living and not just surviving each day😭

Yes very bad. I thinks it's worse than all the pain I'm in. It sucks the life out of me. I feel I don't have much of a life. I recently got put on Adderall for ADD and it does help w energy a lot. Some doctors will even treat CFS with ADD meds. I also allow myself to sleep as much as I need and that's what my body requires. I have depression and anxiety so that contributes to the fatigue and so sometimes my meds won't even help. But I'm still unable to work

I’m reading a very good book now published by a Dr. Titled- TheFibroManuel by
Ginevra Lipton , M.D.
I checked it out of my library . I highly recommend it to anyone. It was published in 2016 and it has a wealth of great information for people with fibromyalgia, CFS and info. to take to your doctor.
Very informative. A 5 star book!!!

I was dx.with CFS a few years before, I was dx. with fibromyalgia. Some days I’m too tired to leave the couch , but I force myself.I am caregiver for my mom. If I go to the grocery store , I’m done for the day. I believe you just have to force yourself to do some things , but not overdo to the point of over exhausted. I look to my faith in God to get me through!🙏🏻❤️
