I've been severely crashed all week. I almost feel like Rip Van Winkle, except that I haven't woken up completely yet.

This week was supposed to be b
usy and fun - the last week of school, time to welcome summer. I have a long list of things I wanted to do to get ready for our vacation next week, get gifts together for Father's Day, and wrap up the school year. Instead, I've been in bed for days. I don't feel much better today, but I couldn't stand it anymore. I took a shower and am attempting to tap out a short blog on my laptop.

How can the CDC use words like Fatigue and (my favorite) Malaise to describe this complete debilitation? When it gets this bad, I am a prisoner of my body. I am too weak to walk, sitting up makes me sicker, and my throat hurts horribly. All those medicines and supplements I take seem to do nothing when I crash. I really hate this helpless feeling. Nothing to do but lie down, rest, and wait.

I've reached the end of my tiny bit of stamina. Time to close the laptop and lie down flat again. I just keep reminding myself that it will lift soon.

Sorry to hear you've been crashed. Is it something in the air??? Been there too myself. Had a nasty fall last week that sure didn't help but was feeling crashed before that. It's funny how so many of us PWC's tend to feel same way at same time.. ever notice that??
