I'm so tired right now i'm finding it hard to function properly.I'm finding it really tough to get the energy to do the things i need to be doing.The thought of having to get up tomorrow to go through it all again is tough.

Thanks for the replies, it is a nightmare when the fatigue from UC starts playing havoc with you.

When the clock hits 1pm i seem to have a very hard time keeping my eyes open. Most days I need a little nap. Some days a long one. most days it's hard to find the time but it makes me feel so much better!
