I hear ya! It seems all I do is work and then lay on the couch and doze until my husband wakes me up to go bed, where I fall right back to sleep. I just had blood drawn yesterday and my GI is doing tests for vitamin deficiiencies, anemia, thyroid, you name it, he's testing for it. I should know by Tuesday. For the past two months he kept insisting it's due to stress and depression but I was like, the darn UC is the only thing stressing me out because I can't effing function anymore. I begged him to get to the root of the fatigue and rule out something "real" before declaring it stress and depression.
I miss the gym but I just can't push myself through even a gentle work out. If my stomach gives me a break from running to the bathroom I try to take my dogs for a good brisk walk at least.
