Non-Restorative Sleep

One of the most difficult aspects of living with chronic illness is dealing with debilitating fatigue. Regardless of how much sleep I receive, I continue to experience this disruptive symptom, on a daily basis.

Sleep is no longer restorative for me. I long for those days when I would awaken refreshed in the morning, ready to tackle a brand-new day. I feel very depressed about this aspect of chronic illness. I’m aware, of course, that feeling depressed also exacerbates the degree of fatigue that I am continuing to experience.
