I do everything that I'm supposed to. I see my doctors, take my medications, but the fatigue just goes with the disease. Some days are better then others, and of course other things can make it worse (like being sick with a cold). The only time I've REALLY had my energy back, was when I was on prednisone. I felt normal again. Now that I'm tapering off, I'm back to wanting a daily nap, and tiring easily.
So I'd try to remember that it can just be part of the disease, and nothing more can always do about
it. My husband knows this, and realizes that I just may need to kick back and relax sometimes. Or even take a nap.
