Familiar Fatigue

The events of recent weeks have produced significant joy in my life. However, such happenings have also been accompanied by a considerable amount of increased stress. Not surprisingly, my MS fatigue has recently been especially severe.

I’ve been trying to pace my activities, interspersing them with rest periods. Nevertheless, my fatigue is truly relentless. My sheer excitement about the very positive types of events that are now happening in my life is not sufficient to counteract my debilitating exhaustion.

As previously mentioned, I don’t look significantly different, whether I happen to feel relatively more well-rested, or if I feel on the verge of sheer collapse from fatigue. This leads others to consistently overestimate the actual amount of activity that I am honestly capable of performing.
