Sep 8, 2013 · Tired ALL the time :-( in Just Want to Talk

Since being diagnosed in January this year, I am plagued with this fatigue. I’m sure you know what I mean. I’m a very positive person but now this is getting me down. I regularly have to rest. Have a full time demanding job and just about am coping. Find it hard to run around after my son, we have done hardly anything in the summer holidays. I’m worried I’ll slip into depression as this is starting to really get me down. No one really understands 🙁 Help!

Hi – I’m a single mum to a lil boy aged 9. I was fine until January this year. Very active mum. I work full time in a demanding job. I am plagued now with this fatigue. This is the first summer ever that I havent been able to get out and about and run around with my son. It’s really gettingme down too. I just have to rest all the time. If I overdo it one day, I pay the next 🙁 I thinnk we just have to have a sensible diet (try to exercise – joke that is, since we have no energy) and stay positive ! good luck

Sep 8, 2013 · MCTD (Mixed Connective Tissue Disease) in Autoimmune Diseases

I was diagnosed in January when all of a sudden I spent a week not being able to get out of bed. I put it down to flu but remember saying that i just dont seem to have other symptoms other than tiredeness (Extreme tiredness!). Thats when it began. Got diagnosis of mixed connective tissue disease and am now on hydroxychlorine. My main issue is the tiredness. Since my flare up that was so bad in January, I’ve never been the same. I am tired all the time. I am a single mum of a boy aged 9 and I’ve been soo active with him in school holidays and done so much with him all these years. this year is the first year, I have done nothing – literally. He’s like, mum why are you always just resting? i cant even take him to legoland or for a run in the park with a football. Well, i can, but then I’ll be knocked out for the next two days. This is really starting to get me down too, alot. No one seems to get it. Im not just making it up, when i say I’m tired, I am exhausted. I can be ok for an hour and then if you see me two hours later, I’m in zombie state. so unpredictable. EllashaB, I feel for you. This is new for me too. I also need advice on how to slow down. I have a full time demanding job also. Some days i just cant think straight now. HELP 🙂
