I reaallllly reallly struggle with fatigue, its one of my worst symptoms. Thankfully my managers are incredibly understanding and allow me to go home if I need to, and are also amending my contract so I don't have to work more than 3/4 days without a day off, so that I don't get too tired.
I haven't really worked out a way to combat the fatigue yet but I do try to get as much sleep as I can, I also make sure I do simple things like get my 5 fruit and veg a day, drink loooads of water. I also plan my week out so that I don't do too much in one go, for example - generally I won't go out on any of the evenings that I have worked during the day unless I have a day off the next day. And I try to keep my days off for resting or just doing small things, rather than planning them out with lots of activities.
I find this very difficult mentally as I used to be the sort of person that went out quite a lot and never used to worry, but you gotta keep positive :)
