Tired of being tired. Need encouragement.

by tryingtohope

Hello SP: I am having a really difficult day and need help/encouragement. My body hurts so much today. Just can hardly move. I am so tired of being tired all the time. I’m tired of not getting restful sleep no matter how long i stay in bed. I am tired of not being able to type because my hands hurt so much (I am dictating this.)

I am so tired of it hurting to cook and clean and do laundry and even work in my garden.

I have so much to do this weekend and I am so overwhelmed and so tired.

I really need help tonight. Thank you for listening.

I’m really sorry you’re in so much pain. Is there medication that you can get to help with the pain and inability to sleep?
I’m also sorry I don’t have anything helpful to say. I wish I could help. Please take time this weekend to do something that makes you happy, too, because you deserve it. Wishing you all the best.

Thanks Beyond. Your kind words mean a lot to me. Sometimes just being heard is all I need.

It’s not that I don’t sleep; it’s that I never feel rested in the morning. I don’t do well on meds so there isn’t much I can take.

But yes, I will try to take some time to enjoy my flowers. It’s raining so I don’t have to water. Maybe I will take some pictures. My hydrangea are absolutely gorgeous. Purplish, blue with white edges.

Hope your have a good weekend too.

I’m so sorry you’re so tired and in so much pain. I’ve developed severe ME/CFS in the last few months so I can relate to the pain and exhaustion. I hope you’re able to take even a small break from everything you have to do this weekend. I know how physical symptoms, especially when they’re chronic and severe, can wear you down mentally at times, so I hope you’ll be able to let your body rest a bit despite everything that needs to be done. I hope you’re able to relax, even for a small while. I’m sorry you’re so overwhelmed and tired. If I could take some of the burden away I would.

Trix: thanks so much. It is nice to be understood. In some ways that does ease the burden a bit.

Yes, I’m worn out physically, emotionally and mentally.

My dad died 2 1/2 months ago and there is so much paperwork to handle. Plus I have all my own stuff to deal with and no one to help me. I haven’t been diagnosed with fibromyalgia or CFS but I wonder if I have them. Or do I just have old fashioned depression from stress and pain and grief. It doesn’t matter. I’m just tired and wish I could sleep forever in a garden of pansies and hydrangea.

Thanks again. Have a nice weekend.

I’m very sorry to hear about your dad. And that you’re having to deal with so much alone. I wish there was more I could do. I hope your physical symptoms are caused by depression – at the very least it could mean they could leave alongside it someday. Either way, I hope something changes soon. Sometimes taking one moment at a time seems like the only possible thing to do. The garden sounds beautiful. I didn’t recognise your username but your last comment made me remember your post with the pansies. I came on SP that day and I was too ill to write, but I wanted to say thanks for the pictures – I kept coming back to look at them. 🙂 I hope you feel better soon.
