A sudden feeling of tiredness
Wanting to do things but not able to
Just wanting instead to lie down and rest
or even just have a nap
Five minutes work and I feel exhausted
Everything will just have to wait!
Sleep during day but still sleep at night
Mind slows down……
No thoughts except feeling 'my head is hot'
Aches and pain come which normally don't exist
In legs, ankles, knees, ears, eyes and back
Did I get this because I walked in rain?
Or did I catch an infection?
Keep warm, eat properly, they say to me
Then it will never happen
But one week later, it's still there
more rest, more sleep ………
And finally it's no longer there
And I feel I can walk for miles!
But when will it return?
I wish I knew so I could be prepared….
