Working with Chronic Illness

I  work in a 9-5 or office environment. Working full time can take a lot out of you and that's regardless of your health status.

I’m fatigued not tired

When you are tired, you can get sleep and feel better. Fatigue is still there when you wake up. Fatigue is when you wake up more tired than when you went to sleep. It stays with you all day. It's lack of energy, a feeling of mental, emotional and physical exhaustion. The pain never goes... Continue Reading →
