I am just so exhausted. I am not sleepy but I am finding myself nodding off at work, at red lights and early in the evenings while watching tv/reading/playing in puzzle books.
No matter how much sleep I get, I still am having a hard time getting up in the mornings and am slower at getting ready for work. Been late several times this past week or two. Even with fibro I usually stay fairly active, but not lately. about the only thing I do is a load of laundry and make my bed. And, of course, put in a full day at work.
I know that as soon as the radiation therapy is over and I am cleared I will start the thyroid meds and will soon be feeling better and more energetic but what till then? And, how long will that be? I still haven't heard from the radiation dept. on getting that appt.
I have called the doctors office to explain how exhaused I am and that the fibro is starting to act up and that I just cannot handle coming in to work all day everyday......so we will see if she calls me back and will help me get on short term dissability.
My eyelids are full of fluid and heavy. my skin, mouth and eyes are dry, dry, dry. I feel dehydrated no matter how much I drink. And, I have those "whoozy" kinda headaches you get when you don't get enough sleep even though I get a full night (with the help of ambien).
sorry for the run on and the paragraphs being in the wrong order but I cannot type them over again - already did once when I accidently erased it all. I just needed to whine. thats all
thanks for listening.
