Text: The fatigue of this depressive episode continues to consume me. I am exhausted, all the time, even when I am anxious and can’t sleep. The mental energy required to get through my average day leaves me out of fucks & energy by 4pm. Bone-crushingly tired.
I went to my doctor and talked to my therapist. The dr checked my thyroid, checked for anemia, then echoed my therapist: light therapy, Vitamin D, prioritize sleep, exercise. Guess which one I’m struggling to do? How the fuck am I supposed to exercise when most days I barely have the energy to get my kid to her appointments?
Guess I’ll have to figure it out. I’ve tried everything else, am doing everything I’m supposed to, to get myself through this. I need to get through, need to be myself again.
