I think I've developed "Chronic Fatigue" of coarse related to UC/IBS. Last Nov. was hospitalized for two weeks w/major flare and literally sat on the couch or slept for five months after discharged. about a month ago, still was feeling very lethargic, but decided to start a exercise program and start going out w/friends more. It's been little over a month and still feel exactly the same, but my body has good stamina and a little more toned. I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to feel like this if I stay home or try to do outside activities, so I try my best to go out without overdoing it--it's been great for the psychological stuff, I no longer feel my life is passing me by, which I felt a couple of months ago.
