Yesterday, I came into work at 6:00am (yes, I work on Labor Day) so I could take off early, go see a movie and do some shopping. But instead, I had several LBM's (loose bowel movements) before I left work so by 10am I was SOOOOOOOO tired. I just wanted to sleep. I made it to noon, but I no longer wanted to go see a movie or shop.
I FORCED myself to go walk for 30 minutes, although I almost fell asleep doing that! By the time I got back from the gym, I crashed on my couch and was OUT for 3 hours. Mind you, on Sunday, I'd done nothing but laundry and watch movies and went to bed early so it's not like I didn't sleep any the night before.
Sometimes, I can have a certain "type" of BM (LBM's in my case) that cause massive fatigue. I don't get it. It comes out of nowhere...so frustrating.
