I slept for close to two years due to depression and fibromyalgia. I was able to do it though as I didn't have any responsibilities. But I knew that I had to get moving around as I was gaining weight because I was always physically active before that. Plus life was going on without me. It was hard. I was so fatigued and exhausted all of the time. I could barely walk.
I guess what I am saying is sometimes we should allow ourselves to sleep and get the rest that we need, but there comes a time when you need to start living again. It is slow, but a sure process. Are you seeing a counselor? I always ask that because it is so important. Many members don't always get a good fit the first time and it turns them off to counseling. But when you find a good counselor, it really helps. You may even want to go to the doctor and get a complete physical and makesure that there is nothing else going on that would causse you to feel so fatgued. But by the sound it, it could be the medication. Often the side effects go away in a couple of weeks, but if yours doesn't, I would talk to the doc about a med change like Gem suggested.
I truly hope that you start to feel better soon. Fingers still aren't working well, so I am making a lott of mistakes. Sorry. arthritis.
Take care, and keep posting.
