Holy cow, AMEN! People who've never experienced fatigue/malaise just don't GET IT! My GI, too, said to get some excercise...but do they not understand how DIFFICULT it is to just go WALK when it took every bit of energy you had to get through the work day? Yesterday, I went to Wal-Mart. I was in there about 20 minutes and was in tears by the time I got to my car, because I was SO FATIGUED. I've been sick lately, and it's been tough getting out to do anything but work. And even this week I've gone home from work early and am out today due to massive fatigue.
