First of all, I must print a “retraction” to the hoards of people reading this: Praying to change your life is the name of the book I had the pleasure of reading the other day,not Praying for a Change. Please forgive!
Well, I have chronic fatigue. For those of you who are thinking, “Who doesn’t?” I’ll tell you who doesn’t. Most of you. For those of you who feel tired or who have ever been exhausted, I don’t pity you. I have been there. However, most of you haven’t been where I’m at right now. Where I have been for the past 5 months. Chronic fatigue is something completely different from anything most of you have ever experienced. I got up at 10 am and by 4 pm, i had taken 2 naps. i became so breathless in the grocery store, i had to go sit in the car. I became dizzy and lightheaded. I have now developed somewhat of a fear of passing out, as i have done so about 3 or 5 times in the past 6 months. My muscles will only do so much work and will only be taken so far before they inform me that they are done. (They don’t really speak to me for those of you wondering. I have CFS, not schizophrenia.) Tack these symptoms on to recovering from dental work and you’ve got a ray o’ sunshine. Gotta go, my fingers have stated they’re done typing.
