Marlee, I know exactly what you mean. I have often wondered if all my stressing about having to go out to shop or someother errand, isn't really making me more tired & fatigued. Dr. Phil says you use as much energy stressing over something as you use to actually do it, so if you stress over cleaning the bathroom 6 times you have used that much energy. (I read this back when I thought I must be lazy before being dx'd) I guess it must be true. I agree with Karen that your shower & just getting out probably helped alot.
I love to shop whether I can buy anything or not. I used to say all the time I have shopped till I dropped. Now I know what that really means. LOL I love thrift stores!!! Yeah vintage!!!!
My husband, Mike, helps me clean the house too. For a long time I took it wrong, thinking since I was not working I should be able to do it all by myself. It was his way of saying he understood.
Have a good day, hugs, Denise

major food for thought, Marlee- ive often wondered how much of this is pyschological, or a reaction to my surroundings, thankyou for posting this and getting the ball rolling,
