I’ve been asked a lot of questions since my journey with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/M.E. and Fibromyalgia began. Which is great as both illnesses are still so misunderstood/mysterious and I’ll happily do my bit to increase awareness in any way that I can. Keep the questions coming, please! Some of them are easily answered, but the hardest one for me is always to describe exactly how the fatigue feels, especially at its worst. The best that I can come up with is “if I don’t lie down right here and right now, I just might die”. Which probably sounds pretty over the top to someone who has never experienced this kind of fatigue, even when they know that I’m not a drama queen, or given to exaggeration. There must be better descriptions out there, but I came across the above picture a few days ago and think that it gets the message across far better than any words can. That’s it, right there, for sure.
