Starting or even completing house chores can be cumbersome when chronic fatigue or pain strikes. Standing and moving around for too long can easily take its toil on you. By using a chair or a stool as an aide, it will help you to not over-exert yourself. I now have a seat in the shower and one in the laundry room. I have been able to do more, by sitting down.
