I've been fighting more fatigue than usual for the past few weeks. And because I don't work and can nap, I don't know how you (& others) do it. Take care of yourself as much as possible.
I use to work a job with an hour lunch. I had to drive so far both ways and was gone from 5:30 am to 6:15 pm. I'd get tired so I started taking my lunch, going to my car to eat it, then I'd recline my seat and set my phone-alarm for 25 minutes. Talk about a pick me up! My boss found out and tried to write me up for it. I told her it didn't matter where I went at lunch as long as I arrived back on time to do my job, she could not stop me from napping on my time. Little did i know just how hateful she could be, and controlling. She actually went to the head boss and created a policy & procedure that everyone had to take their lunch in the break room.
I patiently waited and when I found a new job I told her my time & family was too important for me to drive that far anymore. She ended up getting fired within 2 yr for major violations, and her boss was gone soon after.
Anyway, my point in that story was, if you can find just 15-29 min to get a power nap maybe that will help. Thinking about you and praying for you. 🙏🌼
Lucky13, I was doing great on cymbalta for about 6 months, then I plummeted to the opposite end of the spectrum. It caused pain, fatigue ,depression & suicidal ideation. I didn't realize how bad until I was off it several months. I hope it will work better for you. But to be safe, track your side effects and concerns. Good luck!🙏🌼
Flappsy I'm sorry to hear that you are having such a hard time with you fatigue. I have noticed over the last month that I tire out faster than I used too. Just passed it off as getting a little older,I just turned 59 in Feb. Lol my husband told me that it's not going to get any better, I refuse to believe that. I'm going to fight to the bitter end. I am planting a garden and it's about to get the best of me but when the ground drys up enough to finish planting all my seeds.
