Zazucat.....that is a good way of explaining it to people. I'm sure most people can relate to the day before the come down with the flu or bad cold.....that ache all over, knock you over the head kind of fatigue, that brain fog, headache, all I want to do is sleep kind of feeling.
I'll use the same analogy when people ask me why I'm always so tired.....I mean , it's become my middle name....
tired , old Mary
