For the past few weeks I have felt like something is zapping the energy out of me. This is how it is when you have chronic fatigue and chronic pain. Some days I'm just a zombie. I can't take most pills because they make me sleepy and incoherent, and I have to be able to watch my daughter every day.
Chronic pain can cause depression, and it's definitely taking its toll on me. Today hasn't been as bad though. I'll be able to do a few chores and hang out with Lexi when she gets home.
But I need my "me" time while she's at school and my parents are at work. Otherwise I literally go crazy.
