Fatigue

Fatigue

It invades me without warnings. It might be an MS symptom that everyone with this disease feels. It might sound like an excuse to many people. Who doesn't need one more hour to sleep? Who couldn't use 10 more minutes of rest? But It goes beyond that. MS Fatigue is different from regular fatigue. It's more intense, It's connected to heat and humidity.
It stops you from your regular responsibilities. It's an invisible, powerful force that drains you. I can have a good night sleep and in the middle of the morning feel exhausted. I battle with myself everyday to stay active and not surrender. The sun could be shining bright, your day filled with experiences to be lived, moments to be seized and your dreams to be accomplished, but if your body says no, your life is on hold. MS Fatigue is frustrating.
