I often get asked what Chronic Fatigue is like. Each time, I just don’t know what to say. How do I explain the myriad features that add up to this unusual, disabling condition? Or that if I spend spontaneous time with you today, I may not be able to do the things I’ve planned for tomorrow?
Most people can’t fathom what it’s like to feel beyond tired. And I don’t remember what normal feels like. The good news is I also can’t remember what struggling to get out of bed by 5pm felt like.
So, please take a look at this 90 second video by Alex Howard. It does an excellent job of quickly conveying an answer. My favorite part is when the pink teddy bear says to the brown teddy bear, “Have you ever known me to be a lazy person?” If you’re a CFS/ME/Fibromyalgia patient you might want to share this post with your friends and family!
