Hi, sorry to hear about
the fatigue. When I was at my worst, getting out of bed in the morning took about
45 mins and my energy didn't improve until early evening.
I hope you're otherwise in remission? Either way, there are a couple of things you can try.
1. Vitamin D supplement, it's an immune booster in general but when your levels are low, you often feel much more tired
2. Kratom powder, 3G or 4G first thing in the morning. It's a plant herb grounded up to make a powder that releases many of the feel good chemicals used for energy that your colon ordinarily has trouble making
3. Ashwganda, another herb. You can buy this in pill form anywhere online. It's known to increase energy, among other things like reducing anxiety and helping your body to better deal with stress
4. Are your emotional needs being well met? If not, this can sap the emotional energy you need for the day and leave you feeling drained most of the time. This has a huge impact on our immune system, especially when dealing with sickness. The Human Givens have a really good way of describing what our needs are (I'm not affiliated with them). Here's a pasted paragraph:
security (stable home life, privacy and a safe territory to live in); the need for attention (to give and receive it); connection to others through friendship, fun, love, intimacy; a sense of autonomy and control; being part of a wider social community, which satisfies our need to belong; the need for status; a sense of self- competence (that comes through maturity, learning and the application of skills) and a drive for meaning and purpose.
5. Diet, some people through experimentation find that cutting wheat gives them their energy back, I found potatoes and dark chocolate were very good. Just find what works for you.
I hope these give you some hope that you can turn your situation around. I don't think most of us have to just live with fatigue, there's loads we can try to overcome it.
Hope you feel better soon.
